PURPOSES OF ASSESSING GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN CHILDREN

Before you assess the growth and development you should be aware of the purpose of monitoring. The purposes are as follows:

  1. To assess the physical parameters and developmental milestone-tasks of children. 
  2. To identify the deviation in growth and development. 
  3. To suggest appropriate stimuli/activities to parents to promote optimum growth and development in their children.
