The Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) Program helps families:

  • Find a medical clinic
  • Find a dental clinic
  • Schedule appointments
  • Arrange transportation
  • Assist with an interpreter
  • Understand what happens at a checkup
  • Help connect to community resources (e.g. connect with WIC Nutrition Program or Head Start)

What happens at a checkup:

  • Lab tests
  • Immunizations (shots)
  • Screening for lead
  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Referral to a dentist and fluoride varnish (to help prevent tooth decay)
  • Development and behavioral screenings
  • Social-emotional and mental health screenings
  • Height, weight and other growth measurements
  • Education about the next stage of your child or teen's growth and development
  • Time with your health care provider to talk about your questions and concerns

    Your child should receive regular checkups from birth to age 20

Child and Teen Checkups meet the health requirements for Head Start, WIC, school, sports or childcare. Be sure to bring any forms you need filled out with you to your appointment.
