Best Resources for Autism and ADHD Developmental Concerns

Your child’s development is one of the most important reasons for keeping well-check appointments in pediatrics. Well-checks are scheduled for specific ages in the first 2 years of life to help periodically assess developmental progression.  Our practice uses an assessment tool called Ages and Stages to track your child’s gross motor, fine motor, language and social development.

Delays or differences in the acquisition of milestones are not always a sign of something bigger – many children have their own timeline for how they progress.  However, if a developmental difference becomes more dramatic or consistent, a plan with your pediatrician to further assess the issue will be undertaken.  Early intervention is the key to making a big positive difference in your child’s development!
