Children learn new skills every day, and it can be challenging to keep up with when and what they should be doing. This section is dedicated to providing a basic lists of skills acquired by the end of each year of life up until school age. If your child is not achieving goals according to typical development, you may want to take notice and seek a prescription from your primary care physician to have an evaluation completed by a therapist. Areas of development have some overlap across disciplines. In general, cognitive-perceptual (CP), fine motor (FM) and self-care (SC) skills would be addressed by an occupational therapist. Gross motor (GM) skills would be addressed by a physical therapist. Finally, language (LA) and social/emotional (SE) skills would be addressed by a speech therapist.
