The school district’s Readiness Team is providing free developmental screenings for young children 3 to 5 years of age on Jan. 30

“Our free developmental screenings offer parents an opportunity to verify early on that their child is meeting appropriate developmental milestones at specific time intervals,” said Irene White, the district’s director of special education and student services. “Our local data clearly shows that early intervention services, if needed, can significantly improve a child’s development and readiness for school.”

The 30-minute screening available in both English and Spanish measures children’s skills at communication, physical activities, problem solving and socializing.

The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Services Building, above the pool, 625 Park Ave.

Outcomes will be presented to each parent and will include a discussion of potential focus areas.
