What is a Developmental Milestone?
Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. 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, act, and move. Click on the age of your child here to see the milestones.
