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.

Interested? Read more about (and access) Milestones in Action here.

CDC’s Report to Congress on the Management of TBI in Children

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) disrupts the normal function of the brain, and can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a related injury. It affects children differently from adults–and children have the highest rate of emergency department visits for traumatic brain (TBI) injury of all age groups. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) have just released a Report to Congress on the Management of Traumatic Brain Injury in Children, which details the impact a TBI can have on children and their families. Accompanying the report are 4 fact sheets for different audiences as well as graphics and digital ads that can be used on the web, Facebook, and Twitter to “get the message out.”

Access the CDC’s report to Congress, the fact sheets, and other materials, beginning at:
