It is common for every parent to ask at some point: Is my child developing normally? Are language and physical skills age appropriate? Shouldn’t he be taller by now? Should I be concerned about whether my child is underweight? Or overweight?
Remember that children progress at different rates across a wide spectrum of what is considered “normal” development. Consistent appointments with your Northside Pediatrics team on a recommended schedule will allow you to discuss these issues with trained medical professionals and have all of your questions answered.
Every well-child check-up with Northside Pediatrics will be scheduled with the additional time we need to assess and discuss your child, your family and your concerns. Be sure to review our full schedule of well-child care and immunizations to learn more.
As another great resource, visit the “Ages and Stages” section of healthychildren.org. Here you’ll find reliable information relative to your child’s developmental stage: ages 1-3, 3-5, 5-12, 12-18, and 18-21.
