Act Early Oregon recognizes that parents and caregivers are the expert on their child. Promoting ways for parents and caregivers to expand knowledge about developmental milestones is an Act Early Oregon priority for assuring parents and caregivers have the resources they need to be the best parents they wish to be.

Developmental Milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (crawling, walking, etc.). Download Milestones Checklists  to track your child’s development and view these Milestones in Action photos and videos of children showing developmental milestones (start by selecting your child’s age below).
