Children grow and develop very fast. It is not always easy to know whether or not they are developing appropriately and meeting developmental milestones.
As a parent of a young child (birth to age 6), you might be worried about a certain behavior that your child is displaying -- only to find out that this kind of behavior is typical for a child who is the same age as your child.
On the other hand, you might feel that a particular behavior that did not concern you at the time is now a problem and should be addressed right away, either by yourself or by a professional.
If you do worry about your child's development, the following questionnaire will help you pinpoint where these concerns about your child lie. It will also guide you to the appropriate professionals and/or agencies that you should contact.
The questionnaire will start with general questions about children's development and will then lead to questions about specific developmental areas.

This questionnaire is for you to fill in, and to share it with someone of your trust.. Because is a pdf document, it must be printed and only you will know the responses to it.
