Does my child need help? How can I tell?

Each child is unique and every one develops at their own pace.  The most important thing to remember is that everyone is different.  Ask yourself:

  1. Is my child happy?
  2. Is my child functioning in an age appropriate way?
  3. Is my child able to express his/her needs and feelings?
  4. Is my child’s behavior conducive to our family life?
  5. Does my child have any fears, anxiety or other negative emotions that hinder his/her daily life?

If you are truly concerned with your child’s development it is always recommended to speak with your pediatrician.
