What is Early Childhood Screening?

Early childhood Screening is  is a simple check of your child's development.  Screeners will take the time to check your child's height, weight, vision, and hearing along with their social/emotional skills, language skills, motor and cognitive skills.

Who should be screened? 

Any child between the age of 3 and 5 years old (before kindergarten entrance) should be screened. The ideal age to screen is 3.5 years old.  Screening is required prior to kindergarten entrance with the goal that students are ready for kindergarten.  If a concern or delay is identified at screening, we may be able to provide resources and services to your child, prior to kindergarten.
