"Should we read a book?"

TITLE - Seema Agarwal - Rohan's Mom

"I have a young son, Rohan, he's 18 months old. He's very active, he's always on the go, very loving and very fun to be around."

(Seema Agarwal)

"What does a doggie do?"

(Rohan)

"Woof! Woof!"

(laughs)

Seema Agarwal - Rohan's Mom

"It's was important for us to go see Rohan's doctor today because he is ready for his 18-month check-up. We wanted to make sure that he received the immunizations that were due for his age group."

"We've been a little bit concerned about his size - he's always been on the 'small side,' so we wanted to make sure he was following his growth chart."

(Dr. Patricia Mousmanis to Seema Agarwal)

"Yes, I can understand a lot of what he is saying"

(Dr. Patricia Mousmanis to Seema Agarwal)

"He's communicating very effectively-"

(Dr. Patricia Mousmanis to Seema Agarwal)

"Do you have any concerns about Rohan-"

Seema Agarwal - Rohan's Mom

"Well, I liked how the doctor gave me an opportunity to ask any questions that I had about, you know, things coming up - she was able to reassure us that he's following his growth curve very nicely, and overall it was a very pleasant visit."

(Seema Agarwal and Rohan, waving to doctor)

"Bye-bye!"
