Each year children and teens go through different phases of growth and development. Schools in Redford, MI tend to require children to receive a physical for enrollment or sports participation to record health status prior to the school year. Every child grows at a different rate, but there are things that doctors at Millenium Medical Group look for to make sure they are on the right track for proper growth.
Doctor Examinations for Preteens and Younger
Elementary age children between the ages of 6-9 go through changes involving coordination, attention span, and speech and vision improvements. Our doctors in Redford/Livonia area, will give your preteen (tween) a thorough examination and record your child’s status. Then discuss with you whether they are on track or need improvement in some areas. Mental, physical, and emotional health are all very important areas in child development. As your child grows, ages 9-12, doctors will look for their improvement in these same areas as well as monitoring their advancement towards puberty.
Teenagers During Adolescents
Adolescent aged teens go through the most dramatic changes during their life. This is the most challenging time for a teen as they go from being a child it a young adult, also known as puberty.
