English

While every child develops at their own pace, there are certain milestones they should reach from birth to age 5 in how they play, eat, learn, speak, behave and move.

Skills such as taking first steps, eating solid food, speaking words or phrases and emotional self-control are considered developmental milestones. It is important for parents to pay attention to how their child is developing in the early years for potential learning delays and disabilities. Early intervention is key and you are your child’s biggest champion.
