Developmental milestones

Learn how to help your child in their development.


Milestones are steps, or behaviours, that show the progress of development that is expected during a specific age range. Milestones include physical skills, like sitting, standing and walking, as well as first words, toilet training, sleeping, and emotional and sensory development.

Pediatric rehabilitation can help if your child is having challenges in these areas of development.
