If a Parent is concerned about a baby or toddler’s development


NASET's Parent Teacher Conference Handout

If a Parent is concerned about a baby or toddler’s development

As a teacher, you may hear from parents concerns about a child’s early development. It’s not uncommon for parents and family members to become concerned when their beautiful baby or growing toddler doesn’t seem to be developing according to the normal schedule of “baby” milestones i.e. walking, talking etc.

“He hasn’t rolled over yet.”

“The little girl next door is already sitting up on her own!”

“She should be saying a few words by now.”

Sound familiar? While it’s true that children develop differently, at their own pace, and that the range of what’s “normal” development is quite broad, it’s hard not to worry and wonder.
