Developmental Milestones for Children

Children come in all shapes, sizes, and abilities. They also develop at their own pace. Therefore, it is impossible to tell exactly when your child will reach a specific developmental milestone. Click on the attachment button below to find a chart that will give you a general idea of the changes or "milestones" you can expect your child to achieve at a certain age. Please do not be alarmed if your child does not seem to "fit" in the chart. Remember that each child develops at his/her own pace. This chart is merely meant to be a guideline to ensure that your child is developing properly.
