Early Childhood lasts from 1 through 4 years of age. Well Child Checks are scheduled at 12 months, 15 months, 18-20 months, 24 months (2 years), 30 months, and then beginning annually at 3 years of age.
In early childhood, every visit with your Provider will include health history, a physical examination (including height and weight), an Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), behavioral assessment, and developmental surveillance.
Depending on your child’s age, your Well Child Check may include vision testing, an ocular photoscreen, and developmental screening for Autism. At 24 months, we begin monitoring your child’s BMI and blood pressure. If family history or your child’s health condition warrants, we may also monitor hearing, cholesterol, and oral health or perform additional blood testing.
Immunizations are scheduled at 12 months, 18 months, and 4 years. Additionally, if you would like your child to have an annual flu vaccine, these may be done at a Well Child Check. If your child is not yet due for their Well Child Check, an appointment for a Nurse Visit can be arranged. To view ACP's Routine Immunization Schedule, click here.
