When a baby or preschooler lags far behind, doesn’t reach key developmental milestones, or loses a previously acquired skill, it’s reasonable to suspect a mental or physical problem serious enough to be considered a developmental disability. These pages in English and Spanish appearing on the HealthyChildren.org website provide authoritative guidance on developmental disabilities, developmental milestones at various ages, and what parents and professionals need to know or do.
While the overarching theme of these pages is “Developmental Disabilities” (or “Discapacidades del Desarrollo,” in Spanish), what you’ll find when you visit is a suite of articles in both languages about specific disabilities that are considered as developmental disabilities. We’ve listed the individual articles below, under Additional Information. Any of them interest you? Would any be helpful to the families you serve? See what’s available for yourself by visiting:

This wealth of information on developmental disabilities comes courtesy of the American Academy of Pediatrics, through its HealthyChildren.org website. Here’s a listing of the articles in the suite, with their English and Spanish titles. Some articles may not be available in Spanish.
