WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING?
A developmental screening is a brief test to determine if a child is functioning at age level in the different areas of development such as personal/social skills, adaptive/self help skills, motor skills, communication skills and cognitive/thinking skills. The results of a developmental screening are helpful to the Child Find team to make a recommendation as to whether or not more specific testing needs to occur.
