Yashoda Hospitals Child Health Check-up
A child is any individual who is between birth and puberty. Legally, a child is considered as a minor, those who are below 18 years of age. All children are dependent on adults or caretakers for support and basic needs. A special child needs much more attention than others. The motor and cognitive skills of the child develop with age, guidance from parents and teachers, and peers.
Significantly, the child may or may not have the ability to identify a health condition. It is up to the parents and caretakers to help the child to remain healthy. Personal hygiene, grooming and etiquette are vital for the child’s transition into adulthood.
