Early Childhood Screening
What is Early Childhood Screening?
Early Childhood Screening is a free and simple check of how your child is growing, developing and learning. It includes checking a child’s height, weight, hearing, vision, speech, language, motor and cognitive development. A nurse will discuss the results with the family and provide resources and referrals as needed.
Why complete 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 through Forest Lake Area Schools. Screening is not an examination to determine readiness for school. The purpose is to screen for potential problems that may interfere with a child’s ability to be successful. Early screening and intervention promote early success. Screening at three years old is preferred.
