Developmental checklists are important for 10-year-olds as they provide insight into a child’s progress and potential areas of difficulty. This is because they can give parents, educators, health professionals, and other caregivers an overview of a child’s development compared to what is generally expected at a certain age. Through the use of these checklists, potential physical, cognitive, emotional, and social problems can be identified early and appropriate interventions can be put in place.
