Is Your Child Under Age 5? Take the Developmental Milestones Screening
Children develop skills, or "milestones," at their own pace. How is your child or grandchild doing? You only need 10-20 minutes to check with the Ages & Stages Questionnaires® online screening. Your results will help you see if your child's developmental progress is on time and alert you to any concerns that you can talk over with your health care provider.
