Most parents and professionals are familiar with early motor milestones— when infants learn to hold their head up, turn over, sit up, crawl, and walk. However, few parents or professionals know the key milestones of social, communication, and language development. Yet these milestones offer a critical window into an infant’s well being and are the earliest signs of healthy development and school readiness. These Growth Charts are available free to families who have been invited by their doctor or health care provider. Parents can explore our side-by-side video player to see video clips illustrating 80 social communication milestones that develop from 9 to 24 months of age in 5 different domains. You can watch the clips again with narration to see how you can support your child’s development. You can chart your child’s development and celebrate these early critical steps as you watch your child grow. The Growth Charts offer an unparalleled video library of hundreds of video clips of typically developing infants and toddlers interacting with their family in everyday activities. This information will help parents be better equipped to monitor their child’s development and to share and express concerns with your primary care physician, if your child has not yet met expected developmental milestones.
