Development is often divided into specific domains, such as gross motor, fine motor, language, cognition, and social/emotional growth these designations are useful, but substantial overlap exists studies have established average ages at which specific milestones are reached, as well as ranges of normality in a normal child, progress within the different domains varies, as in the toddler who walks.
