What if my child is having developmental issues?
KixCare provides patients with on-demand access to pediatricians and specialists, who are ready with solutions for all your child's medical needs.
Developmental issues refer to delays in the formation of kids’ abilities. These can include delays in language, motor skills and coordination, cognitive skills, or social skills, and are often determined based on specific milestones, including:
Sitting up without assistance at the age of 1
Saying simple phrases by the age of 2
Cooperating with other children at the age of 4
Variation in reaching these and other milestones are common but may indicate developmental issues. Most developmental issues can be identified by the time a child has reached their second birthday.
There are several indicators for each developmental milestone category that parents can look for:
Language Skill Symptoms
Lack/delay of response to name early in childhood
Difficulty saying words and forming sentences
Lack of chatter and/or lack of indistinguishable babbling in infancy
Cognitive Skill Symptoms
Short attention span and poor memory
Indifferent to surroundings/no curiosity
Social Skill Symptoms
Does not respond to name early in childhood
Indifferent to the feelings of others later in childhood
Repetitive pattern of disobedience
Motor Skill Symptoms
Extremely stiff or droopy muscles
Does not grasp and hold onto items early in childhood
Cannot support head
