One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to become familiar with typical developmental milestones that your child should be reaching. If you feel uneasy or are concerned about your child’s development, trust your instincts.
Consult with your child’s doctor and be specific about your concerns. No one knows your child as well as you do. Identifying and addressing concerns early on is critical. The earlier you can intervene with your child, the greater the gains. Intervening early matters!
If you have concerns about your child’s development, The Childhood League Center provides services for children with special needs, birth through age six. For more information, visit www.childhoodleague.org
“I had my suspicions all along from the time he was a little baby. He was almost too easy. He wasn’t really fussy and he didn’t really want to play with toys.
The biggest red flag I got was his speech delay. I knew whether it was a speech delay or autism, he needed early intervention. The earlier you start the better.”

The PLAY Project is designed to increase playful interactions between you and your child. You then use these interactions to help your child develop by applying individualized techniques that are tailored to your family and the needs of your child. As your child grows, interventions can evolve and continue be applied throughout their lifetime.
“The PLAY Project has supported us by giving us tools to help us strengthen our interactions with our son. Whether we’re doing our play with him, at the dinner table or during bath time, it’s giving us the tools to make those interactions the best they can be.” – Julie Luu
