Missing data: You get more from this site when you provide detailed information on the patient. In kids the actual age, pregnancy/labor/delivery history, subsequent developmental milestones, etc. are all necessary to even begin addressing the questions posed. I would bring this issue up at the next well kid exam. Screenings for these issues is part of normal well kid exams.
