Are you worried your child has problems with attention?
Check out these symptoms. If they sound familiar, download the Vanderbilt or Conners scale questionnaire from our website. For children older than seven you should use the Vanderbilt or the Connors scale for children that are younger. Have their teachers, caretakers, coaches, and parents fill them out and send them to the doctor.
We Care for you & your Children
Are you practicing proper posture?
It’s estimated that 80 percent of all Americans will develop low back pain at some point in their lives. Standing up straight and tall not only helps your child appear more confident but also helps relieve muscle strain, backaches, and neck aches. Developing good posture as your child grows has long-term benefits that will pay off throughout their lifetime. The stress on the joints of the spine can cause joint degeneration and spine arthritis. Proper posture helps back muscles relax, reducing fatigue, backaches, and other pains. It also aligns the joints and bones in the spine, further reducing the risk of degeneration and arthritis.
To avoid back pain to pay attention to posture, body mechanics, diet, and sleep positions. It’s also important to stretch and strengthen the muscles in your back and core. Follow these exercises for a happy back!
Solid Food Introduction
Is your baby ready for solid foods?
Breast milk or formula is the only food your newborn needs for the first six months after birth. But by ages four months to six months, most babies are ready to begin eating solid foods as a complement to breastfeeding or formula-feeding. During this time, babies typically stop using their tongues to push food out of their mouths and begin to develop the coordination to move solid food from the front of the mouth to the back for swallowing.

“In support of our strong partnership with the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FL-AAP), we are excited to share their most recent Public Service Announcement (PSA) promoting routine childhood vaccines in Florida.
Simply Healthcare is proud to sponsor the production of this important public health message. Even during these challenging times, we want to ensure parents are aware of the importance of keeping their children up to date in their immunizations. In 2020 alone, there was a 26 percent decrease in vaccine doses, and 40 percent of parents said children missed shots due to COVID-19, according to recent data released by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
The PSA which was produced in English and Spanish can be accessed via these links. We hope that you can share the PSA within your organization, as well as with your community partners, patients, and families.”
Car Seat Basics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of kids in age groups 1-14. Safe Kids USA says motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of unintentional injury-related death for all children 14 and under. While some crashes are unsurvivable, over 57% of deaths for children 0-15 were because the child was unrestrained. Many more were improperly restrained. Nationally, the misuse rate for child safety seats is over 80% and as high as 95% in some areas. The good news is that correct use of car seats and boosters does save lives. Infant seats have been shown to reduce fatal injury by 71%, and toddler seats by 54%. The information and links on this web page can help you with one of the easiest and most important ways you can protect your children.
