What is a Child Find Screening?

A Child Find Screening is a developmental screening. It is a brief assessment designed to identify children who might be at risk for a possible learning and/or developmental delay. Screening offers a quick sampling of a child's skills across areas of language, reasoning, gross motor, fine motor, and social development.

 

Who will be at the screening?

Our preschool teachers, speech therapist, occupational therapist, and school psychologist facilitate the screening.

 

How old does my child need to be to participate in the screening?

Preschool aged children who are at least 3 years old are eligible to participate in the screening.

 

What can I expect after the screening?

Screening is always the first step-- it does not provide enough information to identify an educational disability or the need for special education services. A screening will offer insight into a child's strengths and weaknesses. After the screening, staff may offer recommendations, suggestions, and/or resources for you and your child. If delays are suspected, staff will discuss the process for further evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.
