A Note from the Medical Editor
How children play, learn, speak, act, and move at any age provides important clues about their development.

Be aware of important  developmental milestones and celebrate all that your child is learning to do! Remember to share progress with your child’s pediatrician at each well-child visit
The best person to track your child’s development is you! If you ever become concerned, talk to your child’s pediatrician. You know your child best. Don’t wait. Acting early can make a real difference!
