In brief: 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.
