While childhood is a period of rapid brain development defined by early motor and language milestones, very little is known about the development of functional networks with increasing milestone abilities. We investigated correlation patterns between resting state functional MRI network connectivity and standardized scores for motor and language milestone functions in a large cohort of typically developing children spanning from 3 months to 6 years of age. We demonstrate distinct functional network connectivity patterns for major motor and language milestone functions, which increase in number with task complexity.
