Development for children is faster when they are younger, so there should be a complete physical exam at their WellCare visits. Your healthcare provider will check the child’s growth and development to find or prevent problems. Your provider will also record your child’s height and weight, check hearing and vision and do other screening tests. Even if your child is healthy, well-child visits are an excellent time to focus on your child’s wellness.
