It’s back to school time at the Infant Welfare Society Children’s Clinic. Kids are getting ready to head back to the classroom, ready to learn by getting school physicals, teeth cleaned and backpacks with school supplies.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, no matter the age there’s the yearly back-to-school checklist of to-dos: shopping for school supplies, filling out permission forms, and scheduling your child’s yearly pediatric well-child visit.

A yearly physical exam by a family’s pediatrician is an important part of your child’s health care. Officials said every child and youth should receive care through a family-centered medical home. Within the medical home, care is provided continuously over a long period of time so that as a child ages and develops, his or her care is never interrupted. Adolescence, for example, is a time when vital changes are taking place.
