Developmental Concerns

Welcome.

It is a scary feeling when you notice something different about your child's development. Maybe your baby isn't sitting up when he or she is supposed to. Maybe he or she isn't walking or babbling at the same time as other babies his or her age. While it may be difficult to acknowledge the differences in your baby's development, you are laying the foundation for him or her to have a greater opportunity for success later in life.
