Step 1: I have concerns about my child but I am not sure what is considered a typical development.
Please see the link to the right labeled "Developmental Milestones". There you will find a few resources to help you learn the skills most children accomplish at a given age.
Step 2: I have reviewed the Developmental Milestone resources and still have questions. Who do I call?
