Bold Beginning!
Early intervention services are for children birth to age three. Early childhood programs serves children ages three to eight. BOLD Beginning coordinates Ohio’s system of multi-agency early childhood programs and services for children, families, and communities across the state. BOLD Beginning also includes information about developmental milestones. Milestones are skills or abilities that children are typically able to do by a certain age, such as talking and crawling. The way your child learns, plays, and behaves will provide clues about your child’s cognitive, physical, emotional, and social development. Developmental milestones are important because they can indicate whether or not your child would benefit from special intervention support. If your child is having challenges with any of the milestones, consult your child’s pediatrician.
