12 YEAR VISIT
The 12 Year Visit involves a comprehensive exam, a review of your child’s development and growth, and a review of your child’s diet, voiding habits, and sleeping routines. Depression screening will continue and now that your child is entering the 7th grade, you may need to start obtaining sports physicals. An audiogram (Hearing Screening) will be performed. Remember, your child is allowed an optional 5 minutes to talk with the provider alone for their privacy.
Attention: There is 1 vaccine at this visit and pre-teens can get VERY anxious with it, though it’s no different in nature than the vaccines they received as an infant. Pre-teens can get so worked up they can pass out (one of the joys of puberty), please plan on relaxing for 15 minutes after the vaccines to ensure your child’s safety from an unexpected fall.
Call 785-842-4477 to schedule.
