Early and frequent screening of development is a top recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics and ZERO TO THREE, and children in poverty are less likely to receive screenings and are at higher risk for life long health complications. You can help advocate in your place of work, community, state or with national policy to support life long health and well-being-- which starts with a healthy beginning.

Think you can spot a developmental milestone? Take the milestones quiz to find out! Developmental milestones are skills that mark a child’s development; things most children can do by a certain age. Milestones like babbling, finding hidden objects, and playing alongside or with other kids provide clues about your child’s developmental health. So, look for your child’s milestones regularly, celebrate them, and record them to share with your child’s pediatrician.
