Well child checks help us keep track of important milestones in your child’s development. Some well visits will include one or more brief questionnaires. These screening tools will help us see whether your child is at risk for problems, now or in the future. With this information, we can make a plan on what to do next. You will also be able to talk to your child’s provider about any concerns you have.
