No two children develop, grow, and learn at exactly the same pace. But, children do develop in predictable ways, known as developmental milestones. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by the time they reach a certain age. You can follow your child’s development by knowing the milestones and watching how your child plays, learns, speaks, and acts.
A developmental screening is also an important tool to know if your child is on track. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s development, or want a developmental screening, contact your pediatrician or call Help Me Grow Inland Empire at 1-888-464-4316.

Below is a timeline of developmental milestones. They can tell you where your child should be and where they are headed next.
This information on developmental milestones is from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Learn the Signs. Act Early.”
