Child development is how your little one’s skills in how they play, learn, communicate, move and interact with others changes as they get older. Each new learned skill is a developmental milestone.
Every child is different. Some kiddos may be walking at 9 months and some at 14 months. By 1 year, your little one may be saying a word or two, or not. How a child learns and grows is based on many different factors. The best we can do as caregivers is see where your child is at and learn ways we can promote an support their unique development. Through screeners, like the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), caregivers, therapists, medical providers and developmental specialists can see the areas of development in which your child is thriving or where they may need some extra help.
The ASQ offers questionnaires, or screening tools, about your child’s development.
