Development of the child - checklist


The aim of this checklist is to assist teachers and parents to identify early on when a child has a developmental delay.

It is so important to remember that each child is unique. Each child develops at his/her own pace; therefore no 2 children’s milestones will be achieved at exactly the same time.

When using the checklist, please give a 2 - 3 month leeway to either side of the time frame given (e.g. if it says that a child has to walk when he/she is 1 year old it can mean that the child may start walking when he/she is 9 months old or 15 months old).

If you see that the child has a delay in more than important 2 areas, please consult your pediatrician.

When a child has a developmental delay it is recommended that the child receives therapy: either speech therapy, occupational therapy, play therapy or the therapy that your pediatrician recommends.

This checklist may also be used to provide children with age-appropriate stimulation activities.

Please take not that this is not a standardized test but only a guideline for developmental milestones.

You will be able to use this checklist, as a guideline, to determine if a child is functioning according to his/her age level or as a guideline for age-appropriate stimulation activities (for teachers, therapist, parents).
