I would need to do a lot of research on medical questions.
The first medical person to talk to would be the child’s doctor. Hopefully he/her has been seeing the child regularly and would have the current health file on the child. This would be the best scenario. It may not be the case.

If not, I need to speak to the parent/parents as to what immunizations etc the child has had and by whom and when.
Does the child have any development questions?
The age of the child is taken into account. Parents. Foster parents. School. Any doctors the child is currently seeing? Then to the child him/herself Physical capabilities. Cognation levels?

On any medications? Any allergies?
