Each milestone impo: All developmental milestones are important in that they relate to skill development. If one is skipped, like crawling to go directly to standing/walking there is little concern. But language and social emotional milestones are very important due to effects on communication, learning, and relationships with others. Adult support and stimulation is a key feature to help in development.

Expected talent /age: The early use of milestones the roads leading to rome has been extended to the discussion of child development.Observational studies on thousands of healthy kids helped define the age & variability for the time when a baby is expected to show a talent. Adjusted for prematurity, this allows drs to identify problems that interfere with development at a stage when treatment can help the most.
