When do you bring your child to see a primary care provider for a healthy visit and which assessments are recommended at these visits?
Last month, the American Academy of Pediatrics published a table of updated recommendations of preventive health care services that children should receive from infancy through adolescence. The table provides a schedule of children’s well-child visits. It also shows details about the screenings and health assessments recommended at each visit and when certain health services may be provided. Each child is unique, so additional visits may be appropriate. If you have any questions about this schedule or about your child’s progress, please consult your child’s primary care provider!
