Did you know regular well child visits are one of the most important things you can do to keep your child healthy? Preventive care promotes healthy growth and development. We recommend that you call our office 3 months in advance to schedule an appointment. We follow the AAP recommended screenings (ex: photo vision screening, postpartum depression screening, developmental/depression screening, etc).
At Cornerstone we are fortunate to partner with Reach Out and Read, a program committed to integrating reading into pediatric practices, advising families about the importance of reading with their children, and share books that serve as a catalyst for healthy childhood development.
At every well visit from 6m-5 years, we give each child a new, developmentally-appropriate book to take home with them. We offer books in both English and Spanish different. Books can even be useful for families who don’t read—we encourage them to talk about the story that the pictures tell. Many of the families that Reach Out and Read serves do not have any books at home. At the end of the program, every Reach Out and Read child has a home library of books—each given with the advice to families that they are their child’s first and most important teacher. As they read and spend time together, families form lasting connections and children learn new skills that serve them well throughout their lives.
