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), behavioral assessment, developmental surveillance and anticipatory guidance.
Depending on your child’s age, your Well Child Check may include vision testing, an ocular photoscreen, developmental screening and 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, 15 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.
If your child has additional risk factors or concerns, visits may include observation and additional screening. This may include visits to check weight, vision, hearing, hemoglobin, and observation of oral health.
