Sorry—I’ve only got animation for this visit. More to come on school aged youth!

Watch for the bouncing 12 month old!



The 12-month-old stands proudly, somewhat bowlegged, belly protruding. Walking, one of the most exciting developmental milestones, occurs near the toddler’s first birthday, bringing with it increasing independence.



  • Tell me about your child’s typical play.
  • Plays interactive games, eg, peek-a-boo, pat-a-cake
  • Imitates activities
  • Hands you a book when he wants to hear a story.
  • Does your child feel free to explore or stay very close to your side?
  • Waves bye-bye
  • Has a strong attachment with parent or significant caregiver
  • Shows distress on separation from parent
