|Pathways Awareness Foundation is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about the benefits of early intervention for infants and children with physical movement and/or sensory processing differences. Their website supports professionals and families who have concerns about their children?s physical development.
It offers specific information about pediatric physical development for both professionals and parents, and features a unique growth and development chart approved by the Illinois Chapter of the Academy of Pediatrics. One can use the chart to track a child?s physical, play, and speech milestones from 3-15 months. The chart also explains what parents need to know about normal development during this age period, gives an overview of developmental milestones, and includes pictures, as well as warning signs for potential movement and developmental problems. It is a great tool for physicians and parents to use and share.
You can also view the entire Pathways Awareness Foundation video (in both English and Spanish), by clicking on the ?Affiliates? button on the left side of our home page. Then click on the link below the heading ?Early Infant Assessment Redefined?.
