Typical Child Development

Children go through specific developmental stages as they mature.  Influenced by factors such as personality, temperament, ability, and environment, children make their way through these developmental stages at individual rates, supported by their own unique styles.

With such a wide range of developmental differences to celebrate, it can sometimes be hard to identify when a genuine problem may be unfolding, yet identifying problems early can be the key to prevention and effective intervention.

Many high quality internet resources provide accurate information about healthy child development and how to know when to seek help.  Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and Georgetown University’s Bright Futures are excellent resources.  If you are seeking additional child development information or guidance, you can also contact your school’s counselor and/or a local pediatrician.
