Developmental MilestonesShare This +
Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (crawling, walking, etc.).

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that ALL children, regardless of concern, are screened using a standardized, validated screening tool at 9, 18, and 24 or 30 months of age. Has your child been screened using such a tool? If not, talk to your Health Care Provider about having your child screened or call the Oak Creek Health Department today to have a questionnaire sent to you.
The earlier a potential delay is discovered, the sooner the child can get into necessary services and the better the outcome.
