As a parent you are your child's first teacher. As parents and teachers we need to observe our children in an objective way, trying to see the whole picture. Observation helps us to see the strengths of our child, but also any weaknesses or things that may need extra attention. It is important for you to observe your child to catch any potential developmental delays that can be caught as soon as possible. The sooner a developmental delay is seen the sooner it can be referred to a professional for further help with this area. We all want our children to be as healthy and happy as possible. Through obeservation and interaction with our children we can learn a lot from them. Observation is an important skill for us to develop that will enhance the lives of our children. I am including a website link on this page that highlights some developmental milestones to be aware of as you observe your child(ren). If you ever have any questions about your child or his or her developmental level please feel free to contact his or her teachers or other professionals. By working together we can ensure the best possible life for all of our children.
