Developmental Ages and Stages

Understanding what is developmentally appropriate for your child is very important for many reasons. It helps you set expectations properly, understand your child, teach your child effectively, and, when a child has CF, is critical to helping children successfully transition to independence.  
Parents also need to know what is "normal" and what isn't from a general developmental standpoint especially when your child is taking medications that could cause side effects.
Here are some good resources to help you navigate the diffferent ages and stages of your child. This includes the nomal developmental milestones which apply to all children as well as developmental milestones for your child with CF.
