INTERVIEWER: Weíre discussing child development with some experts. Tell me, whatís the normal development of, say, a two year old.

KID: My truck! Brrrmmmm.

INTERVIEWER: So saying two- to four-word phrases and engaging in pretend play. And what about social development?

KID: Look, Anna!

INTERVIEWER: Ah, being enthusiastic about the company of other children. Thank you.

ANNOUNCER: Itís time to change how we view a childís growth. Itís not just physical. There are milestones your child should reach in how he plays, learns, speaks, and acts. A delay in any of these areas could be a sign of a developmental problem, even autism. The good news is, the earlier itís recognized, the more you can do to help your child reach his full potential. Talk with a doctor, visit cdc.gov/act early or call 1-800-CDC-INFO. A message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services...Centers
