Health and Developmental History: Specific Visits
Questions for the Health History
health and developmental history should be obtained
from the child's parent or an adult familiar with the

The pull-down menus below suggest age-specific questions on physical, developmental, and behavioral health, as well as topics including family, nutrition, and healthy and safe habits. The 5 - 20 year visits include questions for the child or teen in addition to those intended for the parent.
These questions are intended to be used selectively during health interviews.
From the broad lists of questions offered, providers should tailor each interview by selecting questions most appropriate to the needs and circumstances of the family, child, or teen.
