All humans - we - have a ‘standard operating procedure’ in regard to our development. In general, a baby will have teeth break through the surface around 5-6 months…but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t right if your child has every single tooth by 4.5 months.
All children grow and develop at different rates, and it can be difficult to identify what is normal for your little one, and what might be a sign that they need some additional support. That’s where we come in.
True: We all develop differently, and in our own time.
False: All children should be doing the same things at the same time.
With this critical truth in mind, we have provided you with a collection of early indicators; markers you can watch for in your own child. There are also milestones that you can use as a guideline to see what’s true for you, and what may not be true. Either way, all of the information that you gather by reading through both of these lists can provide fantastic information for an upcoming screening…so bring it with you!
If, after reviewing our early indicators and key milestones, you have questions (or even just curiosities), bring those with you to your screening. Our experts will be happy to answer them, and the information you gather will be invaluable for their examinations, too. It’s a win-win.
