Early Intervention Developmental Screenings
Some preschoolers have difficulty developing certain skills. Warren County Public Schools' Preschool Child Find offers free development screenings for children ages 2 (by September 30th) and 5 to assist in identifying the need for special education services. The screenings are conducted by an early childhood special education teacher and a speech/language pathologist. The screenings assess general development in the following areas:
Motor: includes gross and fine motor skills, the ability to move the body
Adaptive: self care skills such as feeding and dressing
Personal-Social: the ability to relate to children and adults
Cognitive: the ability to learn and use new ideas
Communication: includes understanding others and expressing one's thoughts
If you have concerns about your preschool aged child, please contact our child find office to schedule an appointment.
