Pre-Teen and Teen Health

Castle Connolly MedicalSpeech and motor delays are common in children, but how can you tell if your little one has a developmental problem or is just a late bloomer? Atlantic Health System’s pediatric rehabilitation specialist says there are general guidelines you can follow. Babies should be able to roll from back to front at six months, sit up at eight months and say three or four words at one year. With older kids, look for poor speech articulation, trouble getting dressed or difficulty keeping up with other kids athletically. Read more of the interview with our expert, who explains developmental delays and how pediatric rehabilitation can help.
