For Parents

How your child plays, learns, speaks, and acts offers important clues about your child’s development. Talk with your child’s medical provider at every visit about your child’s development and what to expect next.

Identifying a Delay

You can browse through our Milestone Moments section to find information about certain developmental stages that children are expected to go through at certain ages. Is your child behind other children in his or her development? This is one of the first steps to take towards identifying a developmental delay.

You can also browse through our Learn the Signs section to learn more about what symptoms are associated with certain conditions.
