Developmental milestones are clues that your child’s growth is on track. The way they listen, talk, move, behave and learn at certain ages are big milestones. Every parent should know, track and ask doctors about developmental milestones. It’s the key to a healthy start in life.
Developmental screening is a way for your doctor to test your child and see if his or her development is on track. It is recommended that your child should be screened in the following intervals- 9 month, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months and then every year after that. A great way to remember screenings after 30 months is simply remembering to schedule one every time your child’s birthday comes around!
