Stacking Blocks Development Milestones
Early Intervention: Developmental categories consist of: Gross Motor, Language, Fine Motor/Adaptive, & Personal/Social. Assessment requires evaluation in all 4 areas. Variation in normal development is common & milestones are interpreted using statistical analysis for age. Most at 28 mos put on clothes, build tower 6 cubes, combine words, jump. Early intervention is key if concerns. See doctor for correct assessment.See 1 more doctor answer
Developmental milestones are normative stages that have been established for children. We know the approximate ages that kids begin to sit up, walk, talk, use the potty, and interact socially. Parents and professionals use these milestones to determine if a child is within the expected range of ...Read more
Might be delayed: Each baby reaches the developmental milestones at their own pace. Preemies can lag behind infants of the same age, but often catch up within the first to second year of life. Every baby's developmental curve is different. Remember, it's not a race. Enjoy each stage as it happens.See 1 more doctor answer
The list is too long: For this format. See HealthyChildren. Org. Some are: Dress independently in "pull-on" clothes Exhibit pretend play with peers, taking turns & working out differences verbally; Play simple board games; Say name & age; follow 3-step commands; Draw a circle & a person with 2-4 body parts; know 3 colors, numbers & shapes; pedal a trike; identify feelings; Speak in 4-5 word sentences; follow rules.See 1 more doctor answer
"Normal" language: Language is one of 3 domains of impairment for a child to qualify for a diagnosis of autism. Delayed language is an exclusion for asperger's disorder, but normal language (not counting problems with articulation (clarity of speech)) not just in terms of understanding and using words but also in using language to communicate with others age-appropriately would make autism most unlikely.See 1 more doctor answer
What is head bobbing means. Worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met. Ped assured not infantile s?
Though there are: Many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations. Spasmus nutans alone, e.g., starts between 4 mos-3 yrs. & often resolves on its own. It's accompanied by nystagmus, rapid eye movements. Gastroesophageal Reflux is another possibility. I'd look into it a bit more.See 1 more doctor answer
1year3month old baby boy. Jerks 2or3 times a day. Active and development milestones meti. Is this kind of jerks normal? Kindof jerk while urinating
Jerking Episodes: HellCat262243. The jerking described is not typical. Infants, particularly newborns, have a startle reflex, but it passes after several months old. Any type of jerking needs assessment with thorough questioning and I recommend an evaluation by a Neurologist. Video taping the episodes can further assist the Neurologist. For consults, my direct link is healthtap. Com/vanessanealmd code PNYTKV.
If there are facial characteristics of fetal alc synd in a 6-mo-old but she meets development milestones & growth is good are there concerns?
Maybe: Obviously you have concerns because of facial features, but these do not have to be from fetal alcohol syndrome.The critical question is whether the infant was indeed exposed to alcohol during development. Any alcohol can be a problem! It is reassuring that milestones and growth are good. Keep close follow-up on these and follow healthy lifestyle choices-good diet once added, no smoking around child.See 3 more doctor answers
10m old baby boy. Development milestones met. Still does jerk few times a day for a month now and move head up down while playing. Worried if its seizure?
Query spasmus nutans: "Nodding spasms" is a rare condition that includes nystagmus, titubation, and torticollis (head tilt). Although common for infants to jerk once in a while, I consider a parental concern to be an important factor in the evaluation. The condition is benign and will self resolve. However, a complete evaluation by a pediatric neurology will put the matter to rest in order to rule out other conditions.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
A Good Resource: There are many developmental stages (physical, social, cognitive) from 3 to 4 years old. Here's a good source of information: www. Healthychildren. Org.
No: No, not all children attain developmental milestones at the same time. Don't worry if your child takes an extra month or two to babble his first words, or take her first steps. All babies are different and attain their milestones at their own speed. You should worry if several months go by without attaining a specific milestone, or if your child appears delayed in attaining multiple milestones.See 2 more doctor answers
Firstsigns. Org has: Developmental & autism-specific screens. Developmental & behavioral info are on healthychildren. Org. A few by 2: jump with both feet off the ground. Scribble, copy vertical & horizontal lines. Throw ball overhand. Self-feed with spoon, hold & drink from open-mouth cup. 50 or more words, 2-word phrases, 50% intellible. Follow simple commands. Respond to time-out. Doff & don shirt & pants
Many causes of delay: There can be many causes for developmental delays. Examples of this would be prematurity, genetic conditions, exposure to drugs, alcohol, lead, or maternal infections. Lack of stimulation can also lead to delays, such as infants who are left in their cribs or infant seats for hours at a time with no interaction.
Progress/independenc: We use developmental milestones largely up until age 4 or 5 to identify those with preschool deficits that can be helped. School then begins to challenge & identify those making progress toward independent thought & responsibility. The ability to master skill sets & accept responsibility for completing tasks at a peer equivalent basis demonstrates that process, .See 1 more doctor answer
We look at school wk: By the time a kid is in school the graphs & charts of infant development are put away and we gauge kids based on school performance. Any discrepancy in their schoolwork & perceived abilities can be evaluated using individual performance tests. The weschler intelligence scale for children and various achievement tests can be administered if needed.See 1 more doctor answer
What to look for: Really looking for problems with behavior, emotions, social relations that can be caused by with a child seeming to have not developed age appropriate skills in a certain area (use of language, movement, visual processing) where the child's abilities are consistent with someone much younger. Many times such issues are confusing and difficult to pinpoint, so best to see a pediatrician.
Yes concern is right: If you are talking about true delays, rather than reaching milestones at the later end of average, then yes it is right to be concerned and to find ways to help your child. Early motor delays can lead to coordination problems for writing and being active with peers. Delays in language has been shown to lead to problems with academics, esp. Reading, and social-emotional relationships.
Develop milestones: Six month olds are generally sitting unsupported (briefly), holding a cup/bottle, rolling both directions, babbling including consonants, responding to emotions of others, passing objects from one hand to the other, searches briefly for objects, and brings objects to the mouth. They should be sleeping all night and napping at least twice daily.See 1 more doctor answer
That depends...: It depends on how early your baby was. A premie's development is compared with others who are the same "corrected age" (chronologic age minus the number of weeks or months the baby was born early) until age two, when most will be "caught up" developmentally with their chronologic age-mates (babies born on the same date as they were). If a baby is only mildly preterm, he may catch up earlier.See 2 more doctor answers
