Your child at 10-12 months

Toddler being held by her dad

As your child approaches their first birthday, you are likely to have noticed them becoming far more independent as they start to move around more, communicate and develop their own personality.

To help you review your child’s development, between the ages of 10 and 12 months you will be asked to complete an ages and stages questionnaire. This helps to identify how well your child is developing in a number of key areas, including communication, gross and fine motor skills, problem solving and their personal and social skills.

We’ve created this short video exploring some of the things your child is likely to be starting to do as they come up to their first birthday:

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-19 years called Chat Health. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a public health nurse (health visitor/school nurse) within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.

Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
