Note: Please remember every child is unique and develops at his or her own pace. Don’t be alarmed if your child has not reached every milestone by each age. On the other hand, early intervention is crucial for children who demonstrate delays in speech and language (and other areas of delay). If you do have concerns it is important to seek out professional advice to see if your child might benefit from extra support.
