Your child is 2 years old and reaching more developmental milestones! You may have heard of the “terrible twos” which consist of regular temper tantrums and quick changes in mood. Although, two doesn’t have to be terrible. There is so much to look forward to when your little one reaches this age. For example, their growing desire to be independent and explore/make sense of the world around them as suggested by the CDC.
Right Start Children’s Services is committed to aiding families through serving as an early intervention resource and support. We also provide education and assistance to help your child develop new skills! Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, guardian, or foster parent raising a child, it’s important to keep track of your little one’s growth and development. This way, you can ensure that they are meeting typical developmental milestones for their age and seek additional support if necessary.

Concerned That Your Child is Behind? Right Start is Here to Help!
It’s important to keep in mind that every child is different and develops at a different pace. However, as a parent, you know your child best. If you believe that your 24 month old is not reaching normal growth and developmental milestones, act early! Talk to your little one’s doctor first if something seems off. Don’t wait to express any concerns you are having. Be sure to ask them about developmental screenings as well.
