Babies and Children
- 18-Month Enhanced Well Baby Visit

18-months is a critical time in a child’s development and a visit to a family physician or other health care provider at this time is important. Since 2006 Ontario has funded a longer, more in depth visit at 18-months as it is the last in the series of scheduled health care visits prior to a child starting school.

During the visit, parents will have the opportunity to discuss their child’s growth and development and ask any questions they may have regarding healthy child development, parenting, and community resources. The 18-month well baby visit is often the last in a series of scheduled primary health care visits prior to a child starting school, making it a critical checkpoint for growth and development, and early interventions when necessary.

More information about the 18-month Enhanced Well Baby Visit can be found at www.18monthvisit.ca or by calling 1-800-660-5853.

 

How to Prepare

  1. Book your extended 18-month visit with your health care provider

    At your child’s 15 month visit, be sure to ask your health care provider about booking your child’s 18-month enhanced well baby visit. It will be longer than your other well baby visits so book your time accordingly.

  2. Complete a Nipissing District Developmental Screen (NDDS)

    The NDDS tracks milestones for development, and provide activities to enhance future development for children age 0-6.The NDDS are available online to all parents in Ontario, free of cost. To sign up and receive the checklists please register at www.endds.com.

    Complete the 18-Month Screen and bring a copy to your visit. Video examples on how to complete the NDDS with your child can be found here.

  3. Take 10 minutes and complete Machealth's Visit Planner

  4. Become familiar with the services in your area:

    Throughout the Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark communities, there are a variety of free programs for families. By visiting your local library, Ontario Early Years Centre, and other community programs you will provide an opportunity for your child to interact with their peers, families, and early literacy specialists.
    We have developed a guide for all Health Care Providers to use when completing the 18-Month Visit. Parents can view this guide and bring a copy with them to their visit.
