Good evening, thanks for the question
Development is the increasing ability of individual functions, among others, in the areas of gross and fine motor skills, hearing, vision, communication, language, intellectual, emotion, and social.
Growth and development needs to be monitored so that any growth and development irregularities can be detected and intervened as early as possible, so that children reach optimal growth and development.
Infants who need regular development screening are those at high risk, namely:
Biological risk factors include prematurity, hyperbilirubinemia, intracranial hemorrhage, intrauterine growth retardation, microcephaly, congenital malformations, meningitis / sepsis, pulmonary diseases such as respiratory distress syndrome, meconium aspiration syndrome, neonatal seizures, mother of drug users.
Environmental risk factors, among others: low socioeconomic, unwanted children, teenage mothers, divorced parents, parents / caregivers with emotional disturbances or mental retardation or do not have parenting skills, or abuse drugs.
Head injuries that are intended to be at risk for a child's development are with a history of severe head injuries.
According to the scale of the development of Denver II, which is the function of language, if the age of 14 months with the language skills of mom or dad who are not specific, then classified as late development.
At an age like your child can usually say 3-6 words with meaning, can nod or shake your head to answer questions, point to the limbs or pictures that others have mentioned, and follow one-step instructions. Mothers must be vigilant if there are no meaningful words at 16 months of age. If so, please consult with a pediatrician.
Things that parents can do to optimize children's speech and language development between diligently inviting children to talk and make it a habit to read children's stories so that children get other vocabulary.
Thus, hopefully can help
