A free app from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) helps parents determine if their child’s development is on track.
Available for iOS and Android, the Milestone Tracker gives parents a way to track milestones in children ages 2 months to five years, recognize delays, and share the information with health care providers. Photos and videos in the app illustrate each milestone.
Developed as part of the CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early” program, the app also offers tips on helping children learn and grow and what to do if development could be delayed.
Other free “Learn the Signs” resources include handouts on developmental milestones, developmental checklists, a booklet of milestone moments, milestone photos and videos, downloadable children’s books, and tip sheets on what parents can do if they’re concerned.
