Milestones help you understand how your child learns and grows. Cognitive development is critical to a child’s growth.

It describes how a child’s brain develops, and includes skills such as thinking, learning, exploring and problem solving.

Cognitive skills are measures of how you learn most efficiently, not what you know. Most schools NEVER test cognitive skills, so they might not have the data to know how best to personalize instruction. Every student learns a bit differently. By understanding strengths and needs in cognitive skills, you can help every student learn more easily.
