1 review for OT and PT Development Handouts, Norm Charts, and Developmental Milestones

  1. Cally Hanson

    It’s so nice to be able to respond to developmental norm questions for my clients when they’re still waiting to get in with an OT or PT. Or to be able to confidently say that something their child is doing (e.g., pencil grasp) is still within the normal range of development and is likely not a concern at this time. The handouts are easy to navigate with the table of contents click through.
