In addition to some tips about helping kids get prepared for the upcoming school year, Dr. Anderson also talks about getting your child’s well check exam. He says, “This is a fantastic time for parents to be booking a well-check visit with their pediatrician; particularly for kids with learning disabilities or ADHD.
