Playground Safety

Going to the park or playground? Make sure to consider the condition of the equipment. A recent study by the AAP of playgrounds in Chicago showed one third to one half failed safety inspections1. The inspection included age appropriate design, ground surfacing, equipment maintenance and physical environment.   

ADHD and Learning Differences

Parents often wonder how to determine if their child's behavior is "normal' or if they might have a problem that needs attention. There are many kinds of learning differences a child might experience. Our diagnosticians are experts at evaluating and determining if there are issues that can be addressed and treated in a friendly, supportive environment.

ASQ and MCHAT Developmental Screening

A few weeks before your appointment for ages 4 mo, 9 mo, 12 mo, 24 and 36 mo checkups, you should receive an email or phone call regarding the ASQ screening. At the 18 month well visit, a similar form, the MCHAT—a specific screener for Autism—will be given to you at your appointment.   

Concerned About Cholesterol

Should I have my child's cholesterol checked? High cholesterol runs in families. If your parents or grandparents have a history of high cholesterol, you may too. Having high blood cholesterol puts you at risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.
