Child Find

Child Find Screenings, 2024-25

What is a Child Find Screening?

Screening is a free developmental check for children ages 3-5 in the areas of:

  • Large muscle development
  • Eye hand coordination (fine motor skills)
  • Communication
  • Concepts
  • Personal-social skills
  • Self-help skills

What is the purpose of a Child Find Screening?
The purpose of screening is to identify issues that may affect your child’s learning, growth, and development and to help parents identify their child’s strengths and weaknesses. 

What happens during a Child Find Screening?
During the screening, your child may stack small blocks, cut with scissors, draw, count, name colors, jump and have fun!  After the screening, our team of trained professionals will talk with you about the results.  You may be given suggestions, a referral for more testing, or scheduled to have skills rechecked later.  You will have the chance to ask any questions about your child’s development.  The whole process usually takes about 45 minutes.
