Educating parents about developmental delays

I came across this article, http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/52788663-78/parents-health-autism-campaign.html.csp, that discusses a campaign in Utah to help parents become aware of developmental milestones. It is too bad this campaign is not nationwide. Many families may not be aware of the milestones their child should be reaching or how to get help. Check out the milestone check list – it is incredibly detailed from birth to age five. This can be invaluable information for a family and their pediatrician. Early Intervention is a key strategy to helping children who may have a disability. Be sure to advocate for your child if you think they need additional help. You know your child best!
