Starting school is an important event, which will make significant changes in the child's life. To make it successful, you would like to be sure that the child is physically and emotionally healthy and ready to start school. It is also fixed in law requesting mandatory health examination for first-graders. Premium Medical family doctor-pediatrician Gerda Lielause emphasizes that compliance with this state requirement should not be perceived by parents formally, often at this age, when a child finds serious problems such as back and posture, they can still be relatively easily prevented. It can be that the child has had health problems for some time, and detailed pre-school examination allows them to be recognized. This health examination will provide a comprehensive overview of the child's health, the specialist will provide important instructions to follow at school, for example, if vision problems are detected, the doctor will recommend how far from the writing board the child should sit or what to consider, also by performing physical activities.
Child's medical card with a family doctor's report must be submitted to a school. There are schools that ask to do this already in June, others in August, but according rules the health card must be presented at school when the child starts studying. Premium Medical kindly reminds not to postpone their children's health check to the end of summer - spring and early summer i the best period - there is less chance of "catching" the virus, less visitors at clinic and more time until September to improve health if necessary.
