To understand developmental disabilities, one must have a good understanding of normal development throughout childhood. Developmental milestones are typically divided into different domains, such as gross motor, fine motor, language, and social/adaptive skills. Assessment of attained milestones across the developmental domains allows the examiner to evaluate potential cognitive outcome. Emotional development is also important at all ages.
