Empowering Parents to Detect Potential Delays in their Children with NF1

Children with NF1 commonly experience a range of developmental delays that can negatively impact their daily lives. Early detection and treatment of these delays provides children with NF1 their best chances of success.
In order to help families detect potential delays as early as possible, we have created child development checklists of expected developmental milestones for children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years. Families can easily track the developmental progress of their children.
If you notice your child has not reached a milestone by the expected age, please notify your child’s pediatrician or NF Specialist in order to implement an appropriate care plan.
