Developmental milestones 18 24 months : Social Development

Developmental milestones 18 24 months

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Milestone Mondays post, so I’ll continue in order discussing 18-24 months! The reason I post about typical milestones is so that parents pay attention to how their children are developing and to discuss concerns about possible delays with their pediatrician. Make sure to scroll to the bottom to see the list of activities you should be concerned about for this age to discuss with your pediatrician.

I gathered this info from a site I brought up in aor call 1-800-CDC-INFO.

Act early by talking to your child’s doctor if your child:

  • Doesn’t point to show things to others
  • Can’t walk
  • Doesn’t know what familiar things are for
  • Doesn’t copy others
  • Doesn’t gain new words
  • Doesn’t have at least 6 words
  • Doesn’t notice or mind when a caregiver leaves or returns
  • Loses skills he once had
  • Doesn’t use 2-word phrases (for example, “drink milk”)
  • Doesn’t know what to do with common things, like a brush, phone, fork, spoon
  • Doesn’t copy actions and words
  • Doesn’t follow simple instructions
  • Doesn’t walk steadily

Toilet training.
Choby BA, George S.
Toilet training is a developmental task that impacts families with small children. All healthy children are eventually toilet trained, and most complete the task without medical intervention. Most research on toilet training is descriptive, although some is evidence based. In the United States, the average age at which training begins has increased over the past four decades from earlier than 18 months of age to between 21 and 36 months of age
