|Child Find screenings available|
Local school districts in cooperation with Educational Service Unit #16 are sponsoring an opportunity for parents of preschool children to participate in Child Find screenings.
Professionals will be able to answer questions from parents regarding their preschool child’s speech and language development, motor development, social/emotional development, hearing and learning skills.
Parents who suspect that their child (age 0-five) may need special help are encouraged to call their school district. They will arrange for an evaluation in cooperation with ESU #16.
Children between the ages of five and 21 who reside in Arthur, Grant, Hooker, Keith, Lincoln, Logan, McPherson, Perkins and Thomas counties may be referred to the school’s student assistance team.
The student assistance team provides suggestions for accommodation/modification. This referral may result in an evaluation for special help. Parents should contact their local school district to request this referral.
Further information is available from the local school district or from the ESU #16 office (308-284-8481).
