Is Your Infant or Toddler on Track Developmentally?
Children learn and grow at their own pace. It is important to watch for early childhood milestones. Even though infants and toddlers develop at their own pace, every child should do certain things in specific developmental areas by a certain age. The specific developmental areas fall into five main categories: gross motor (crawling and walking), fine motor (stacking blocks or coloring), language skills (speech and comprehension), thinking skills, and social interaction. The experiences children have from birth to three are important for developmental foundation skills.
Early Intervention is provided at no cost to children and families who qualify for service through TEIS. If you are concerned about the development of a child from birth to three, call Tennessee’s Early Intervention System (TEIS) to talk with someone or refer the child for a developmental evaluation.
The experiences children have from birth to three are important for making sure they are heading in the right direction for success in school, work, and life!
