Who We Are

At Mini Milestones we have the expertise to assess infants and babies as young as 6 months old who are otherwise typically developing or are at risk for developmental delays (e.g., siblings with Autism or related developmental delays). Based on our assessment, our team of experts will develop recommendations for natural environment teaching strategies to target social, play, and language development. We utilize the science based, peer reviewed methodology known as Applied Behavior Analysis.

Our role is to be an advocate for you and your child and to collaborate with your pediatrician and other professionals that are supporting you and your family. We want to empower you to support your infant to meet the foundational skills that lead to growth.

We have offices in South Florida, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Tennessee.

A lot of people are surprised when their preschool child, who is talking, gets referred for a speech assessment for language concerns. Speech therapy is more than learning to talk and saying sounds correctly! If your child has difficulty with one or more items on this list, it might be a good time to talk to a speech pathologist!

This past weekend I had an opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with my niece. We went up into the attic of my parent's house and explored the meticulously saved collection of toys from my childhood. After several minutes, we settled on a bin of magnet blocks (which would never exist nowadays due to safety regulations - but that's a conversation for another day) and brought them down into the living room to play. It was fun to sit back and watch her explore a "brand new" toy. Grace is only 18 months old, so I knew we were working with a limited attention span and began to think of ways that I could extend her engagement with this toy. I gave her a minute or so to manipulate the blocks, before I started to interact with them myself. I narrated my play despite knowing that she didn’t yet understand all the words I was saying, and at that moment my newest visual was born. I quickly realized that it might be helpful for parents, therapists and teachers to have a visual guideline to describe the different ways to talk about toys during play. While this is not an all-inclusive list, it serves as a good reminder that there are many things you can say while you play.

What other ways do you model language for children who are still developing the necessary skills to communicate?

Infants who have a sibling with autism are at higher risk for being diagnosed later on. We need your help in understanding the similarities and differences in the brain between infants whose older siblings do and do not have autism. Visit our website for more information: http://ow.ly/KEuL50xhs4W
