Building Blocks: Milestones at 19 - 24 Months Old

In this video, Dr. Preeti Parikh talks about what you can expect from your child when they reach 19-24 months old. Their vocabulary will be increasing exponentially and they will likely know around 50 words so it is important to talk and sing to them as much as possible. It is important to have both structured and unstructured time. Be mindful of the new skills your child has acquired such as running, jumping and climbing. If your child is not doing any of the things Dr. Parikh mentions in the video, contact your pediatrician to see if your child has some form of developmental delays.
