1 to 2 Year Old Checklist

Your child is officially a toddler, welcome to the “terrible 2’s”! Your child may demonstrate more independence and defiance compared to before but you’re starting to notice a huge change in growth.

Check out the checklist below to determine if your child is on track with their milestones. Feel free to also print this page as well. 

Communication Milestones

Movement milestones (Motor)

Play Milestones

If you notice that your child is not demonstrating some of the milestones above, early intervention is key. Feel free to schedule a consultation to further discuss if your child may benefit from a comprehensive speech-language evaluation.
