Developmental milestones will help you...
This is not a screening or diagnostic tool. It is meant to be used to start conversations with your child’s doctor and other professionals in seeking services or making a referral.
Each child develops uniquely, even within the same family, and may meet certain milestones earlier or later than others. Your child may not reach each milestone until the end of their age range. Talk with your child's doctor if your child does not reach many of the milestones based in their age range.
ASHA's feeding and swallowing milestones are based on international data and are consistent across country of origin or language spoken. A Spanish translation is available for these milestones.
