Screening

It is important to bring your child to registration as he/she will be screened at that time.The developmental screening will involve your child in several learning and play activities.  Through these activities we will examine his/her developmental status in areas such as general language, hand-eye coordination, gross motor progress (e.g. catching, skipping), as well as school knowledge (e.g., shapes, colors).  Your child will not be expected to complete all the tasks.  We are more interested in how he/she responds to the tasks. A speech language pathologist will screen for speech and language concerns if needed.  Vision or hearing screening is not done at this time. You will be in the same room with your child as they go through the screening.  The screening will last approximately 1 hour.
