How do I know where to start?

Tracking your child’s developmental milestones is important, as well as ensuring you watch for progress and the potential need for intervention. Often, knowing where to begin is the best way to ease anxiety or stress over knowing your child’s developmental progress.

The Centers for Disease Control has a Milestone Tracker that allows caregivers to track their child’s milestones from age 2 months to 5 years. The CDC website includes easy-to-use illustrated checklists and tips for encouraging your child’s development.

From birth to age 5, your child should reach milestones in how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves. Photos and videos in this app illustrate each milestone and make tracking them for your child easy and fun!
