Is your child on track? Free developmental screenings available
Child Development Services of Fremont County is offering free developmental screenings. CDS recommends this quick check-up to make sure your child is on track. While most children are, in the case that they are not, CDS will be able to help develop a plan to get your child where he or she needs to be.
Ideally, a child needs one developmental screening before the age of two, and certainly one before the age of five is essential. We’re told that many parents tend to wait until their children enter school to have them screened. CDS warns, “That’s too late. By then, a lot of learning may have already been missed.”
The following free screenings are available to children from birth through the age of five:
- Hearing screening
- Vision screening
- Gross and fine motor skills
- Speech skills
- Behavior skills
- Pre-academic skills
Thanks to the local school district, these screenings are a public service offered at no cost to the parent! It’s free, fun for the child, and most importantly, it could improve your child’s life forever.
Screenings are offered year round. Call today for an appointment or for further information.
