"Diane Bahr's new book provides a wealth of information for parents. Her extensive clinical experience and personal knowledge demonstrates her insight into the needs of parents. New parents will find the charts especially helpful in preparing for visits with medical professionals. It is always difficult for a parent to remember all that they want to discuss at a medical visit. This is a resource they can write in to log developmental milestones, identify concerns, carry with them to an appointment, and use as a starting point for discussion with their pediatrician, dentist, etc." – Pat Taylor, MEd COM, CCC-SLP
