Developmental Milestones

Written by Charmaine Kwok

Wondering or worrying about whether or not your toddler is meeting development milestones?

You’re in the right place! 

 

What are developmental milestones?

First of all, what actually is a milestone?  Skills such as smiling at you for the first time, saying their first words, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. We look at milestones to help us determine if a young child requires further support in specific areas of development. 

Why do milestones matter?

Milestones matter because it gives us a clearer picture of a child's overall development and tells us exactly what support a child requires. Remember, there is a big range of what's considered typical so it is important not to compare your child with others.  If you’re thinking your child may need therapy, the easiest first step you can take is to learn the development milestones and start to track which ones your child is meeting—or not meeting.
