Our Children...Our Future


This guide shows the normal signs of growth in a young child. Many children may develop faster than this. Those who develop slower than this, however, may be "special children" who may have special needs NOW.

If you have questions about your child's development, get in touch with the Early Intervention program in your area.

The Early Intervention program offers services to infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities and their families.

Remember, if you have questions about your child's growth and development, calling now may prevent any future problems.
