1. What are milestones and why are they important?
According to the CDC, skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (for example, crawling and walking).

Children develop at their own pace, so it’s impossible to tell exactly when a child will learn a given skill. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older.


2. What are red flags?
While young children can reach milestones at different ages, the CDC says you should talk to your doctor and consider an early-intervention evaluation if your child displays any of these signs or has a dramatic loss of skills. While red flags differ for different age groups here a just a few examples of red flags for a birth-4 month old:

Has trouble moving eyes or crosses them most of the time
Doesn't respond to loud noises
Doesn't notice own hands (by 2 months)
Doesn't follow moving objects with eyes (by 3 months)
Doesn't grasp objects (by 3 months)
Doesn't smile at people (by 3 months)
Can't support head (by 3 months)
Doesn't babble or try to imitate sounds (by 4 months)
Doesn't bring objects to mouth (by 4 months)
Doesn't push down with legs when feet are on firm surface (by 4 months)

Milestones are developmental markers that show us how children are developing. They are important because they can let us know where the child is age wise relating to their abilities, when children miss a mile stone this is a red flag, this could possibly be an indication of a larger underlying problem or mean the the child is a little behind and may need more help or attention than other children in the class.

Milestones are markers indicating a child's developmental progression. These markers are important because they tell wether or not a child's growth is on target for their age range.  Sometimes there are red flags, or areas of concern, that appear when a child fails to reach a developmental milestone. These red flags help parents and teachers decide if further assessment is required, and if the child requires more help in reaching those markers. Identifying these potential problems as early as possible will get the help the child may need to reach their potential i the future.
