How Infants and Toddlers Develop - Information About Standardized Developmental Screening and the Importance of Early Intervention
Babies and toddlers grow and develop very rapidly in the early years of life. The changes babies and toddlers go through as they grow are made up of different skills like walking and talking. These skills, or developmental milestones, usually happen by certain ages. Parents and family members help their children learn these skills through playing with them and through daily activities. Because parents spend so much time with their children, they often are the first to identify a concern about development. If there are concerns or questions about how a child is growing or learning, search for the Community Centered Board serving the city the child resides within by searching the local agency database. Early Intervention Colorado supports families and helps them meet their children's needs. The earlier children with developmental delays or special needs receive help, the better.
