Health Screening: Finding Health Problems Early - Screening, 13 Months to 12 Years
It's important for your child to continue to
have regularly scheduled checkups, often called
well-child visits. During these visits, your child's
doctor will check your child's growth and development and examine your child
for possible problems.
Behavioral and school concerns. Depending on the child's age, these may include temper tantrums, grades, relationship problems, and aggressive behavior that hurts
others emotionally or physically (bullying).
Blood pressure. It is important for your child to have his
or her blood pressure checked every year, beginning at age 3.
