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.
