Did you know that well-child visits at the 9-, 18- and 24- or 30-month marks are usually used to screen children for possible developmental delays and disabilities? As suggested by the American Academy of Pediatrics, check ups during these periods help the health care team monitor your child’s health and development at the time of typical milestones. These include social and emotional breakthroughs, language and communication milestones, cognitive improvements and physical development. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed a list of major milestones that children should meet at the three-, four- and five-year-old well-care visits.
In our January webchat pediatrician Lynn Milliner, MD will answer your questions related to childhood behavior and development. Such questions may relate to a child’s aptitude, ability to communicate, socialization skills, or physical growth.
