Children develop in certain predictable ways, referred to as developmental milestones. Milestones cover four areas of a child’s development — cognitive, communication and language, social and emotional, and motor. Learning more about these milestones will help you understand how your child learns and grows. Visit Help Me Grow for further information about developmental milestones.
