Developmental Milestones at Age 2

Although all children develop at their own pace, there are some important milestones toddlers hit by the age of 2. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by age 2, your child should be able to:

  • Stand on his or her toes
  • Kick a ball
  • Begin to run
  • Climb on and off furniture
  • Walk up and down stairs with help
  • Throw a ball overhand
  • Make or copy lines and circles

If you’re worried that your child hasn’t hit these milestones, talk to the healthcare provider. She will assess your child for delays and help you find early intervention services if they’re needed.
