"Developmental Planning" is the thinking process of using developmental milestones as a general basis for planning and predicting needs for the child within the early years. It considers the time frames associated with normal development across all facets of the child's development. The areas include bone and joint development, movement, sensory integration, encouragement of speech, cognitive, psychological and social development. Using the "Developmental Planning" model to organize one's thoughts, prepare one's family, and accomplish the goals parents set for their child is one of many effective approaches and tools that can help parents' precious one achieve the highest level of independence possible for them.
