Every child develops at their own pace, but there are some general milestones that most children reach at certain ages. If your child isn’t meeting milestones as expected, it’s important to talk to your child’s pediatrician.

If your child’s pediatrician is concerned about their development, they may recommend a developmental assessment. This is a series of tests and observations that can help the doctor determine if your child has a developmental delay or other problem.
If your child is diagnosed with a developmental delay, there are a number of interventions that can help them reach their full potential. These interventions may include therapy, special education, or medication.
It’s important to remember that every child is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to developmental delays. The best way to help your child is to work with their doctor to create a personalized plan.
