Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (crawling, walking, etc.).
Learn the Signs. Act Early. has information and checklists to help you track your child’s development. Checklists can be printed to share child’s doctor or nurse at the next visit. Track your child’s development and act early if you have a concern.
