Watch and Help Me Grow
Each child develops on their own timeline and not all children meet each milestone at the same time. The milestones listed in our booklet, Watch and Help me Grow provide a timeline for when most children master these skills. Some children will gain several new motor skills without developing new language skills or vice versa. This is typical as long as the child begins to master new skills in the other areas within a month or two.
Children frequently learn through imitation and modeling, so provide many examples of the behavior that you would like to see from your child. If you have concerns about your child’s development, share them with your child’s physician, providing specific examples of what your child does well and when your child seems to struggle.
