Hi, my name is Christina Gavenda at Domesticfelicity.com, and today we're going to talk about observational checklists for toddlers. Observational checklists are tools that you can use or that daycare providers or teachers can use when watching your child to see if they're meeting all of their developmental milestones. It's really important when using an observational checklist that you are realistic about your child. Each child has a different personality. Some kids develop faster verbally. Some develop slower verbally. Some develop faster with their physical motor skills and fine motor skills. Others don't develop as fast. So while they might be making most of their milestones, some of them they might feel a little bit slow in. There is nothing to worry about. If you become concerned, talked to your pediatrician or your child's teacher and find out where the mark is when you should start to be worried and start to ask more questions. Remember that each child is different, each child grows at a different pace and these are just tools. Thanks so much for watching. My name is Christina Gavenda and today we talked about observational checklists for toddlers.
