Abstract

Think of all the skills that children have to learn when they come into the world: smiling, turning over, responding to people, communicating, eating solid food, crawling, standing, and on and on. We expect these skills to emerge naturally over time and know more or less when they should. At 3 months, Susana will probably be doing this, at 4 months, she’ll be doing that. By a year, well, she’ll be tottering around, getting into everything. This time-table for skills to emerge is commonly called the developmental milestones. What’s considered normal development is described broadly, because children don’t necessarily learn skills at the same pace. Two different children born on the same day may learn the same skill months apart, and both can be considered “on schedule.” It’s when skills don't emerge as expected, more or less on that broad schedule, that parents and caregivers may become concerned.
