Well-Child Exam

Well Child Check Ups

Developmental monitoring observes how your child grows and changes over time and whether your child meets the typical developmental milestones in playing, learning, speaking, behaving, and moving. Parents, grandparents, early childhood providers at the Odessa Rural Health Clinic and other caregivers can participate in developmental monitoring. If you notice that your child is not meeting milestones, talk to your provider about your concerns.

When you take your child to a well visit, your provider will also do developmental monitoring. The provider might ask you questions about your child’s development or will talk and play with your child to see if he or she is developing and meeting milestones. A missed milestone could be a sign of a problem, so the doctor or another specialist will take a closer look by using a more through test or exam.

Your childcare provider can also be a valuable source of information on how your child develops. Make your well-child exam today with the Odessa Rural Health Clinic by calling (509) 982-2614!
