The Preschool Child: Health Concepts

by David H. Weintraub - 1972

Health concerns relative to the preschool and early school age child understandably have different meanings to each individual involved. Parental concerns often differ from those of the physician; the physician's concerns, in turn, may differ from those of the teacher and community, and yet all have similarities and overlap. Furthermore, the communicating of facts of health among all participants is far from ideal and often suffers from misunderstanding, misstatement, unnecessarily long delays, over-concern, under-concern, and even failure to communicate at all. In addition, over-attachment to traditional methods of obtaining and administering health surveillance and care to children may contribute to delay in the emergence of innovative and experimental programs in this field.
