What's New

Children with Special Needs:


CMC now offers Autism screening for children ages 9 mos – 5 yrs old, and ADHD screening for children ages 3 – 17 years old.

If your child...

  • tends to be very talkative and impulsive?
  • has difficulty in following instructions?
  • seems too often distracted and forgetful?
  • always leave his seat and roam around inside or outside the classroom and seem to be always “on the go”?
  • often throws tantrums?
  • seems not to listen when spoken to?
  • fails to finish school work?
  • too often fidgets with hands/feet or squirms in his seat?
  • too often can’t wait for his turn?

These could be the early signs of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD)

If your child...

  • always fidget/wiggle his/her hands and walk to and from?
  • ”look through” people?
  • has a tendency to retreat into his/her “own world”?
  • talks to him/herself and prefer to be alone always
  • has a tendency to be disinterested in making friends?
  • always interchange “he” with “she” or “I” with “You”?
  • loves to repeat sounds of words?
  • resists being held and touched?
  • gets obsessed and become rigid with something?

These could be the early signs of Autism Spectrum.

Please feel free to call our office to schedule an appointment for screening.

CMC Says"NO"to Flu:

flu season

Flu vaccine is now available in our facility.

The best way to avoid the “flu” is for you, as a parent take preventative measures for your children in contracting the flu and one of the best preventative measures you can take is to have your child vaccinated.

CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.

In addition, you can take everyday preventive steps like staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs. If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading influenza to others. So book your appointment and call us for the “flu” vaccine before they get into you.
