At Milestone Therapy, we understand how important developmental milestones are in a child's development. If a child is not reaching their age-appropriate milestones, early intervention, such as therapy, can ensure a child doesn't fall further behind. We love this checklist provided by the CDC for ages 2 months to 5 years of age. It not only provides a developmental checklist, but it also has suggested activities you can do at home to help your baby learn and grow.
We have compiled a list of activities and games you can work on with your child at home. These activities are aimed at helping to improve your child's fine motor, gross motor, visual motor, and speech skills. These skills are used to complete everyday tasks and are important in a child's development.
Individuals with autism might need additional support to process the news and adapt to the many changes taking place right now. The UNC Frant Porter Graham Child Development Autism Team put together some materials that lend support to the parents and caregivers of these children. They provide 7 support strategies along with ready-made resources for caregivers to help implement these strategies quickly and easily.
