If you suspect your child may be developmentally delayed in one or more areas, make an appointment with your pediatrician and ask for a referral for an evaluation. Some pediatricians have a wait and see attitude - it is up to you the parent to decide what you want and advocate for your child. Don't underestimate the power of a parent's "gut" instinct. Insurance may cover all or part of an evaluation and or therapy (if needed).

In the United States there is a program called Early Intervention (EI) for children ages 0 to 3. You can also go through the school system special education department for kids 3 and up. There is no cost to you for these programs. If you do have a delayed child, it really helps to watch for small developmental milestones and be careful about comparing them against other children.
