    • Self-Improvement

Were you flabbergasted when the CDC changed the guidelines for developmental milestones In February? 
You weren’t alone. But it is important to look deeper at why these changes were made. The CDC was tasked with updating the milestones and making them less confusing for those who rely on them most -  parents. The milestones are still (mostly) the same, and they are backed by research, as we discuss with Dr. Kate Barlow, OTD, OTR/L, IMH-E®, in the episode.

Kate is an ambassador for the CDC, and she talks to us about the milestones established for the first five years of a child's life. Kate describes why this is important for us OTPs that are in schools. Tune in to find out why!
