Q: What should you know when having your multiples evaluated for services?
- Each child should be assessed individually, one at a time. Ask for completely separate visits, if necessary.
- Do not compare development in same age siblings.
- Realize that higher-order multiples may reach milestones later, but should still fall within the norm.
- Low birth weight and prematurity may contribute to concerns. There are adjustments made for prematurity, usually up until age two.
