In order to determine if an infant or toddler is developmentally
delayed or at risk for delay, it is helpful to understand normal
child development and typical developmental milestones.
What is typical child development?
“Child development is a process every child goes through. This
process involves learning and mastering skills like sitting,
walking, talking, skipping, and typing shoes. Children learn
these skills, called “developmental milestones,” during
predictable time periods.”

HRC has worked with the CDC to make the following “Learn the
Signs, Act Early” documents available in our community, to
provide parents with information about milestones, and tips for
talking with the pediatrician about any developmental concerns
they may have. You are welcome to download these brochures and
share them with others.
