Ontario’s Enhanced 18-Month Well-Baby Visit

Eighteen months is a milestone in your child's development, and the last regular check-up before your child starts school. It's important to plan a visit to a family doctor or other health care provider and take the time you need to:

  • Ask questions about your child's physical, emotional and social development
  • Learn about specialized community supports and services
  • Get a regular checkup
  • Get caught up on your child's immunizations

Use this easy 18-Month Well-Baby Visit planner to help you think about items you may want to discuss about your child's development with your family's health care provider.

Looksee Checklist

The LookSee Checklist is a quick checklist that looks at 13 key stages of development, from one month - six years of age. It explores key skills most children should master at a specific age. It will help to determine if there are any areas where your child might need extra help.  The checklists are available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Arabic, Russian and Farsi.

Tips to determine what key stage your child is at:

  • If your child falls between 2 ages, use the earlier LookSee Checklist (e.g. for a 4½ year old, use the LookSee Checklist for a 4 year old.).
  • There is no need to adjust for prematurity.

What does it mean if I check more than one "NO" on the survey?

  • Your child may benefit from extra help.
  • Connect with us about any questions you might have (we may not have all the answers, but we know awesome people who will!).
  • Talk to your healthcare and/or childcare provider about your concerns.
