Child & Teen Check-Ups

Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) is Minnesota's name for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT). C&TC are for children and teens, birth to 21 years of age, enrolled in Medical Assistance. Regular health checks keep children healthy by finding and treating problems early.

Follow Along Program

Is your child developing on track? Babies and young children grow and learn at their own rate. However, some children may need help to grow up healthy and learn skills such as sitting, walking, or talking. Minnesota's Follow Along Program can help you track your child's development and let you know if your child is playing, talking, growing, moving, and behaving like other children the same age.
