Early Childhood Screening

What is a Child Find Screening?
Screening is a free check of your child's development - including: 

  • Communication (Speech and Language Development)
  • Large muscle development (walking, running, jumping, balancing) 
  • Eye-hand coordination
  • Concepts
  • Social/Emotional Skills
  • Self-Help/Adaptive Skills

What is the purpose of a Child Find Screening? 
The purpose of a Child Find Screening is to identify any factors that may interfere with your child's learning, growth, and development.  The screening is also provided to help parents identify their child's strengths and weaknesses and provide home suggestions. 

What happens during a Child Find Screening? 
During the screening, your child may stack small blocks, cut with scissors, draw, count, name colors, name vocabulary, jump and have fun! Following the screening, trained professionals will talk with you about the results of the screening.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions about your child's development.  YOu may be given some home suggestions, referred on for further testing, or be scheduled to have skills rechecked at a later date.  The screening process typically takes an hour or less.
