How is neurodevelopment monitored?

Developmental milestones are used to monitor neurodevelopment in childhood. These are easily observable developmental achievements such as smiling, sitting and walking. Milestones are assessed by both history and examination. The neurodevelopmental monitoring of milestones must be part of the routine growth and developmental screening of all children.

Milestones are used to assess neurodevelopment in childhood.

The formal assessment of neurodevelopment is often divided into:

  • Gross motor development (locomotion)
  • Fine motor development (manipulation of objects)
  • Language and communication (using sounds and words)
  • Personal and social development (relating to family and society)
