Red Flags


• Missed milestones (particularly bolded ones) or loss of previously acquired milestones should prompt further developmental & medical assessment
• Persistent fisting at 3 mo may represent earliest indication of neuromotor dysfxn
• Rolling <3 mo, pulling directly to stand (rather than sit) at 4 mo, W-sitting, bunny hopping, and toe-walking may indicate spasticity
• Primitive reflexes (Moro, asymmetric tonic neck) disappear btw 4–6 mo; persistence at 9 mo may indicate neuromotor dysfxn
• Protective postural reflexes (righting,protection, equilibrium) appear btw 6–9 mo; if not present, will lead to difficulty sitting and standing
• Due to Back to Sleep campaign, tummy time important for reaching milestones
• Hand dominance before 18 mo may indicate contralateral weakness
• Failure to alert to environmental stimuli may indicate visual or auditory deficits

Basic Concepts


• Assess parent–child interaction during visits
• Review age-appropriate vital signs and growth curves at each visit
• Unintentional injuries are the primary cause of death in children over age 1 yr, so focus should be placed on injury prevention during HCM visits. AAP has policy updates regarding specific recommendations(Pediatrics 2007;119:202)
