Child Development

Helping you to support children reach their milestones

The first five years of a child’s life are crucial for their overall development. They will hit many milestones such as, learning to crawl and walk, a first smile, their first social interaction, all of which will support their ability to learn and interact with the world around them. 

But when these milestones are not met within a certain timeframe, this may highlight a developmental issue that needs to be addressed as early as possible.

Child developmental delays due to the pandemic 

 

It still remains in question as to whether the recent pandemic may have disrupted the early developmental stages of many children’s lives by diminishing their experiences and developmental aids*. This includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Less to no social interaction 
  • Missed medical appointments
  • No peer-to-peer groups and interactions 
  • Less time spent doing physical activity 
  • Less cognitive developing play 

All of which help children develop their behavioural, emotional, language, problem solving, reasoning and social skills.
