SPEECH AND LANGUAGE MILESTONE CHART
The course of children’s development is mapped using a chart of developmental milestones.
These milestones are behaviors that emerge over time, forming the building blocks for growth and
continued learning. Some of the categories within which these behaviors are seen include:
- Cognition (thinking, reasoning, problem‐solving, understanding)
- Motor Coordination (gross/fine motor, jumping, hopping, throwing, catching, drawing, stacking)
- Social Interaction (initiating peer contact, group play)
- Adaptive (dressing, eating, washing)
