For the first time since 2004 the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC have changed the checklist of developmental milestones for infants and young children.

Their hope in doing so is to encourage parents to seek early intervention screenings sooner when they notice delays in their child’s development.

For more information on these changes take a look this article from The Washington Post

If you have concerns about your child’s development please reach out to their pediatrician and consider scheduling a developmental screening through the Milford School District Child Find service.
