Do you have questions about you child’s development?
Check out your child’s progress – if you have concerns please call today for a free screening in your home.

When you review the checklist, remember that each child develops at his or her own pace. The age listed on the checklist is the time when most children usually start the activity.
If your child is not doing one activity at the age listed, there is probably no need to be concerned. However, if your child is late in doing several activities, you should discuss it with your child’s doctor.
