Q: Why is routine health maintenance important?
A: Routine health maintenance is designed to keep a child healthy by ensuring that he/she is getting the required immunizations, is developing normally, and will have any problems detected early.   Top
 
Q: Do I have to stick to this exact schedule?
A: The schedule is useful to make sure that all aspects of routing care are addressed at the appropriate time interval. Sometimes screening tests or immunizations are done slightly out of schedule because of an illness or a missed visit. Routine health maintenance should follow the set schedule as closely as possible.   Top
 
Q: What if I move or change doctors?
A: You should take a copy of your child's medical chart and immunization record with you to give to your next physician.   Top
 
Q: What if my doctor does not follow exactly these recommended procedures?
A: You can use the schedule in this module as a starting point to discuss your child's routing health maintenance with his/her doctor. Health maintenance is tailored to the individual child and there may be a medical or social reason for postponing tests or immunizations or adding other measures to keep you child healthy.   Top
 
Q: What if my child is not on track with the development milestones?
A: Children develop at different rates. You should discuss questions about his/her development with your child's doctor. Early intervention by specialized therapists is useful for helping children catch up if their development is lagging. The earlier the developmental delay is caught the better the prognosis for catching up.   Top
