Lead Screening

It can be hard to tell if your child has lead poisoning – even children who appear healthy can have it. So it is important to make sure your child is screened for lead poisoning when they’re 12 and 24 months old. Lead poisoning can cause problems with your child’s learning and behavior. It can slow your child’s growth and damage their hearing. Children that are around a lot of lead for a long time can even fall into a coma or die.

Most children get lead poisoning from dust that settles on floors, toys, and other places where it can easily get on children's hands and into their mouths.
