Introduction

‘Milestones’ can be defined as set of child development indicators that are designed to support the growth and development of children from birth till their school years. Though every child is unique in his/her own way, but there is a common range defined by the experts that explains skills and characteristics that a child develops during a particular period of growth. Adults such as parents, guardians, teachers and therapists can use these ‘Milestones’ as a resource to understand and support the child’s development as they provide information about the child’s development and needs. These can also be used to identify if there is any delay in child’s development so that it may be addressed in time.
