Enhanced 18-Month Well-Baby Visit

Primary care providers are in a unique position, particularly through the 18-month enhanced well-baby visit, to improve the odds that children will meet their developmental potential. As a child’s last regularly scheduled visit with a primary care provider before they enter school, it is a critical opportunity to examine and evaluate a child’s progress and to identify areas where there may be some difficulties.

To facilitate referrals and access to services, the original 18-month pathway has been updated to serve as a quick reference tool. The pathway document (213 KB, PDF) can either be printed or can be incorporated into your electronic medical record as a live linkable document.
