A happy childhood is one of the best gifts that parents have in their power to bestow

Children grow at their own pace, but a developmental delay is more than just being “slower to develop” or “a little behind.” It means your child is continually behind in skills other kids his age have. Significant delays in achieving the milestones is an important red flag. These delays are significant lags in one or more areas of emotional, mental, or physical growth. If your child experiences a delay, early treatment is the best way to help him or her make progress or even to catch up.
