Cognitive Milestones in Early Intervention
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Course Agenda

Cognitive developmental milestone delay is common in many children who were born prematurely, as well as many with given DSM diagnoses. According to some experts, achievement of cognitive milestones is contributory for proper development of all other developmental milestones across all pediatric domains, which include fine motor, adaptive, gross motor, social-emotional, and speech (both receptive and expressive).

Cognitive development refers to the evolution of the ability to think and understand. In a child, it starts with basic processes such as perceiving objects and events in the environment and understanding and processing language. Gradually, cognitive development in the child’s mind reaches more advanced levels such as the formation of thought processes, which includes intelligence, language skills, reasoning power, decision-making and problem-solving skills, conceptualizing and planning, and memory.

Under the aegis of ‘perception’ – are concepts in child cognition that include attributes of cognition in early childhood and development of mental processes that include a discussion of attention, memory, attribution of causality, object permanence, depth perception, physical laws, shared intentionality, language, metacognition, and symbolic thought.

Cognitive development milestones are a set of benchmarks that represent important steps forward in a child’s life. These milestones reflect how a child’s brain develops and include thinking, learning, exploring, and problem-solving skills. When your child accomplishes a milestone within a timely manner, it’s an adequate indicator that they’re progressing and developing at a good pace, relative to the norm.

Cognitive development is essential to a child’s growth and overall learning. When a child has healthy cognitive development early on, they’re more likely to succeed later in life. Educators, EI Providers, and families play an important role in fostering a child’s cognitive skills through incorporating developmentally appropriate activities, tracking key milestones, and acting early if there are any concerns.

Special educators play an important role in fostering a child’s cognitive skills through incorporating developmentally appropriate activities, tracking key milestones, and acting early if there are any concerns. This primer is a MUST READ for all early intervention providers who service the professional needs of the  infant, toddler, and child with developmental delay.
