The expected height of the child is calculated from the parents' heights. This is shown on the 0-20 years Height SDS chart.

The vaccine schedule provides an indicative vaccination schedule in accordance with the national vaccination program.
Detailed vaccination times and possible individual vaccination programs are defined in the clinic.
The age-related height is the traditional method used to estimate the height growth. The height measured at a given age is examined as relative height by means of comparison curves (0, ± 1 SD and ± 2 SD). About 95% of the height measurements for normally growing children lie within ± 2 SD limits, 2.5% above the limit and 2.5% below the limit.
The age-related weight is a traditional way to keep track of the child's weight. The weight measured at a given age is examined as relative weight by means of comparison curves (0, ± 1 SD and ± 2 SD). The age-related weight is used to monitor the consistent development of weight, especially for children under 2 years of age.
Body Mass Index
The age-related BMI is the most commonly used way to track children's weight. The weight measured at a given age is divided by the square of the height and the result is examined by means of comparison curves. The reference curves (obesity, overweight, underweight, and significant underweight) represent the age-appropriate BMI percentiles fitting BMIs 30, 25, 17 and 16 at 18 years of age. The age-related BMI is used to track the weight of the children over 2 years of age.
The age-related height (in SD units) is only used in Finland to look at the height of the child's growth. The height of the child is drawn on the growth curve using the isometric line drawn in the background. The age-related mean height (0 SD) and standard deviation (SD) are represented as horizontal lines, and the normally progressing growth is outlined almost horizontally. The method makes it easy to detect deviations in consistent growth.
The weight percentage deviation from the median or medium weight is only used in Finland to look at children's weight. The point on the 0% line equals the average weight of the children of same height.
