About childhood behavior and development
Did you know that well-child visits at the 9-, 18- and 24-month marks are usually used for screening children for possible developmental delays and disabilities? These periods allow the care team to monitor the child’s health and development at the time of typical milestones.
These include social and emotional breakthroughs, language and communication milestones, cognitive improvements and physical development. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have also developed a list of major milestones that children should meet at the 3-, 4- and 5-year-old well-care visits.
Possible questions for this webchat
- What are the major milestones in my child’s development?
- Should I worry if my child doesn’t reach these developmental milestones at a certain age, and what are my options if this happens?
- How important are regularly scheduled well-child visits?
Dr. Milliner is a community pediatrician for Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, and is board-certified in pediatrics.
