General developmental milestone charts are meant to be a general point of reference and NOT as a prescriptive guide for exactly when a child will gain the ability for that skill. Children with disabilities generally follow these progressions on their own timeline and may miss milestones that don’t serve them functionally. It is our job as caregivers, parents, and professionals to guide children and families to achieve their most authentic potential.
This toy guide is meant for caregivers, parents, and professionals that are supporting a child who is not independently using both of their hands due to either diagnosis (e.g. cerebral palsy, stroke) or other cause.
