Why is it a good idea to take notes when your child hits and important milestone?

A good way of keeping track of your child’s milestones is to use the Personal Health Record (Red book) to record your child’s milestones at from 6 months to 4.5 years. The Parents’ Evaluation of Development Status (PEDS) is included in the red book provided to the parents of every newborn in Queensland, and is designed to pick up developmental and behavioural issues in children aged from birth, six months, 12 months, 18 months, 2.5 years to 3.5 years, and four to five years.

Parents and carers know their child better than anyone else and may notice things that no one else does. In fact, your observations of your child are the most important part of the PEDS process. It only takes a few minutes to go through the questions.

The PEDS questions are as follows.

  1. Please list any concerns about your child’s learning, development and behaviour.
  2. Do you have any concerns about how your child talks and makes speech sounds?
  3. Do you have any concerns about how your child understands what you say?
  4. Do you have any concerns about how your child uses his or her hands and fingers to do things?
  5. Do you have any concerns about how your child uses his or her arms and legs?
  6. Do you have any concerns about how your child behaves?
  7. Do you have any concerns about how your child gets along with others?
  8. Do you have any concerns about how your child is learning to do things for himself/herself?
  9. Do you have any concerns about how your child is learning preschool or school skills?
