It’s time to change how we view a child’s growth and development!
Do you know all the ways you can measure your child’s growth besides height and weight?
From birth to age 5 years, every child should reach certain developmental “milestones” by certain ages; these are skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye-bye".
Download the free materials provided below, such as the Milestone Checklists, and use them to track your child’s development. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader which you can download by clicking here.
Bring the Checklists to the well child visits with your child’s doctor so you can ask him or her if you have questions.
These materials are provided by the Learn the Signs. Act Early. program from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
