Developmental Milestones

We all come into the world like small sponges, ready to absorb what’s around us. Yet we’re all different, too - another of life’s little marvels. We also develop at different rates. Some children speed along, practically running before they walk. Others take their time (or need more time). And still others may ultimately need four wheels to get around.

But what’s "on time?" What's "normal?" Does "normal" have a range?

Yes, "normal" has a range. Growth does tend to follow a certain sequence. Skills are expected to emerge at more or less the ages described below.

If you have any concerns about your child's development, please discuss it with us. You can also download a milestone checklist here.
