Developmental Disabilities | Discapacidades del Desarrollo

When a baby or preschooler lags far behind, doesn’t reach key developmental milestones, or loses a previously acquired skill, it’s reasonable to suspect a mental or physical problem serious enough to be considered a developmental disability. These pages in English and Spanish appearing on the HealthyChildren.org website provide authoritative guidance on developmental disabilities, developmental milestones at various ages, and what parents and professionals need to know or do. Each page is actually a suite of articles in both languages about specific disabilities that are considered as developmental disabilities. Perfect for sharing with the English and Spanish-speaking families and communities you serve!

See the full list of articles and find links to both the English and Spanish suites.

Milestones Photo and Video Library

Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (rolling over, for example, or crawling, standing, walking, talking). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintain a free online library of photos and videos that capture the milestones of development that young children might be expected to achieve at various ages–skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye bye.”

The photo library is part of CDC’s larger information suite Milestones in Action, which also includes fact sheets on developmental milestones and on developmental delay; a developmental checklist; the Milestone Tracker app; and more. Each resource is available in English and Spanish.

Slow Processing Speed: What You Need to Know

Processing speed is the pace at which you take in information, make sense of it, and begin to respond. This information can be visual, such as letters and numbers. It can also be auditory, such as spoken language. Having slow processing speed has nothing to do with how smart kids are—just how fast they can take in and use information. It may take kids who struggle with processing speed a lot longer than other kids to perform tasks, both school-related and in daily life.

Understood.org offers what is essentially a suite of resources on processing speed, which includes articles, short videos, 1-page fact sheets, and everything in English and Spanish. Read more about and access this wide array of resources.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the most common therapy for children on the autism spectrum. ABA has been shown to help children on the spectrum (from mild to severe) develop needed skills and minimize undesired behaviors such as self-injury. Its effectiveness is backed up by hundreds of studies.

ABA now includes a range of different approaches. This article from the Child Mind Institute describes how they work and how they’re different, and concludes with links to additional readings on ABA.

Access the article in English and Spanish, and connect with the companion readings.
