If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Most parents have concerns at some point during their child's life. Talking with your child's doctor can help. Doctors who are part of Iowa's 1st Five network of medical professionals may refer you to our 1st Five care coordinators ~ experts in linking local resources to parental concerns. 1st Five care coordination services are free, voluntary and confidential.
Remember, early experiences will shape the way children think, feel and behave as adults.
Take your child to the doctor for regular check-ups. Well-child exams are the one place where nearly all families have contact with a health care provider. If you have concerns about your child's learning, behavior or development, talk to your child's doctor about these concerns.
