Developmental milestones are behavioral or physical checkpoints in children’s development as they grow.
- Social/Emotional milestones track your child’s ability to interact with others.
- Language/Communication milestones include the language milestones that represent the building blocks for a child’s communication skills.
- Cognitive milestones represent the way your child learns, thinks, and applies problem-solving techniques to daily life situations.
- Movement/Physical Development milestones track a child’s gross motor skills (core and upper body) and fine motor skills (hands and feet).
Remember that all children are different! Milestones mark the month most children start a certain behavior or ability based on the child’s age, but the exact timing will vary.
