  1. When you watch for developmental milestones, you can celebrate them. And if you don’t spot them when you should, you’ll know to check with the doctor. Unsure of what a developmental milestone is? Visit the following link to find out more: http://developmentalscreeningde.com/for-parents
  2. Children reach milestones in how they move, behave, play, speak and learn. Skills such as smiling for the first time, waving “bye bye”, and taking a first step are milestones. It is important for you to know the signs of on-track development for your child’s age, and to get developmental screening for your child.
  3. Every child is unique. However, many of the ways a child acts, plays, speaks and learns are expected by certain ages. These are known as milestones—and can help you know if your baby is on track. Visit the following link to find out more: http://developmentalscreeningde.com
