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.

Has your child had their yearly check up? If not, call and schedule now. Summer is a great time for school age children to have a well visit. If you have a camp or school form, bring it with you. We can get it completed and you’ll have one less thing to do before the next school year starts.

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.
