Health Education Q&A

What is health education?

Health education is information pediatric specialists at Pediatric Kare Klinic Pllc provide about your child’s health and development. Knowing about developmental milestones and keeping your child healthy can save you time and money and help your child flourish physically, socially, mentally, and emotionally. Health education helps you know when to schedule pediatric visits.

What should I expect during health education?

Your Pediatric Kare Klinic Pllc provider offers health education during wellness exams and sick visits. If you have questions about your child’s health and development, you can schedule an appointment with your child’s provider at any time.

Health education topics they may cover include:

  • Diet, nutrition, and dietary supplements
  • Newborn care
  • Exercise
  • Physical and mental developmental milestones
  • Growth charts
  • Vaccinations
  • Dental care
  • Disease, illness, ADHD, and autism
  • Enhance childhood development
  • Parenting tips
  • Sleeping recommendations

Your provider sets aside time to answer questions you may have about your child’s health and development. They might refer you to a specialist if your child exhibits signs of a developmental delay. For example, they may recommend speech, occupational, or physical therapy.

How can I help my child at home?

The best way to foster optimal growth and development for your child is to do the following at home:

Adopt healthy lifestyle habits

Help your child thrive by adopting healthy lifestyle habits for your entire family. Offer children healthy foods, encourage them to get daily physical activity and proper sleep, read to them or have them read to you, keep stress levels low, and give them vitamin or other dietary supplements if your provider recommends it. Set a regular daily routine for your child.

Learn about developmental milestones

Knowing about important developmental milestones based on your child’s age helps you recognize signs of delays requiring intervention. Health education and reliable resources from the Pediatric Kare Klinic specialists help you know what to expect.

Know when medical care is necessary

Recognizing a disease or illness and seeking medical attention can prevent serious complications from occurring. Maintain routine wellness checkups annually (or more often in babies and young children) to help your child’s pediatric specialist detect health or developmental problems.
