Dr. Valerie Hines answered

Specializes in Pediatrics

This term is used when a child or infant does not reach the appropriate social skills expected for his age (or corrected age if premature). For example, babies typically have a social smile at 2 months, meaning they smile back by 2 months, or laugh at 4 months. If these milestones are not reached in combination with other social skills, they are delayed.
