What is the purpose of Child Development Screening?

The purpose of screening is to provide information on school-related development to parents of children birth to five years of age who are not eligible for kindergarten. Our goal is early identification of children who may need special services in order to experience success in school.

Child Development Screening Procedures

Your child will be screened in these areas: Motor Skills, Cognitive Skills, and Speech and Language Skills. There will also be an area with toys in case there are waiting times. You may accompany your child throughout the screening.

When your child has completed all stations, one of the members of our team will give you the results of the screening and let you know whether further individual evaluation is recommended.

Parents of children birth to five years of age who have questions or concerns about their child's development are encouraged to contact Christina Shott at 360.802.7882 or 360.802.7628 to set up an appointment to screen your child.

There is no charge for this screening.
