WIC Early Childhood Screening

What is early childhood screening?

It is a FREE health and developmental screening for children and is best done between the age of 3 1/2 and 4 years. The screening includes checking a child’s height, weight, hearing, vision, speech, language, motor and cognitive development. A nurse will discuss the results of each child’s screening with the family and provide resources and referrals as needed.

Why do early childhood screening?
Early childhood screening before entrance into public school kindergarten is required by Minnesota State law. Screening is also required for enrollment in preschool classes at Forest Lake Area schools. Screening is NOT an examination to determine readiness for school. Rather, the purpose is to screen for potential problems that may interfere with a child’s ability to be successful in school. Early screening and intervention promote early success.
