Milestones matter!  1 in 6 children aged 3-17 have developmental disabilities—conditions that affect how children play, learn, speak, act, or move.  Many children with developmental disabilities are not identified until after starting school.  Early intervention (before school age) can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills as well as reduce the need for costly interventions over time. 

As a parent, you already have what it takes to help your young child learn and grow. Watch your child’s progress by tracking their developmental milestones —how they play, learn, speak, act, and move – and sharing that progress with your child’s doctor at every check-up.
