Developmental Guides

Developmental milestones help families and care providers determine if a child is growing and developing at an appropriate pace for their age.  The following tools, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” can be used as a guide for parents and providers to gauge a child’s development.

Developmental Milestones:

2 months

18 months

4 months

2 years

6 months

3 years

9 months

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be screened for developmental delay and disabilities at 9, 18, and 24 or 30 months; children should be screened specifically for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at 18 and 24 months.
