Back to school health check list!

It’s that time of year again… back to school!  Here is a handy health checklist for parents of young children preparing for the start of the next school year.

1.  Immunizations are all up to date to protect your children from preventable diseases.

2. General annual physical exam to ensure potential health problems are detected and treated early.  This exam will also determine if your child is growing and developing as expected.

3.  Annual comprehensive eye exam with your Doctor of Optometry to ensure your child’s vision at its full potential because 80{4422c3e9d6d956ffe17c4a9703f8867adf328a271a08c00de098d82d34d0cfb5} of learning depends on vision.

4.  Hearing screening because poor hearing will also interfere with learning.

5. Allergy testing and make a list of all allergies for the teacher/school nurse.
