Developmental Delays

Some children may experience a delay in reaching their developmental milestones at the expected times. Developmental delays can cause social, emotional and learning difficulties throughout a child’s life. If your child isn’t catching up as quickly as expected in a given area, we can schedule them for an evaluation to get a better sense of what’s going on.
