Doctor-parent communication can be essential for helping your child reach their full potential.

Watch this role play between a doctor and a parent at a well-baby visit.

  • The parent expresses concern about her son’s development and, at first, the doctor gives her an unsatisfactory response.
  • Upon further discussion, the doctor requests that the mother keep a diary of her son’s behavior and development.
  • He then suggests a referral for a second opinion, including a full screening/evaluation for the baby.

Track your baby’s development and bring this information with you to your well-baby visits to discuss with your healthcare provider and ensure your baby is on the right track.
