What is a screening?


A screening is an opportunity for parents and professionals to find out how a child is developing in comparison to other children the same age.

Developmental Areas Screened:

  • Hearing
  • Vision
  • Communicating – How does your child follow directions? How well can your child make himself/herself understood?
  • Fine Motor – How your child uses his/her hands to eat or use a crayon.
  • Gross Motor – How a child moves, climbs, catches a ball, etc.
  • Social/Emotional – How does your child play with other children and interact with adults? How does your child change from one activity to another?
  • Self Help – How does your child take care of himself/herself in the areas of eating, dressing, and toileting?
  • Cognitive – How does your child solve everyday problems?

Developmental screening is one of the best things you can do to ensure a child's success in school and life. Even if you believe your child is developing on track, a developmental screening is a great way to have that reassurance that everything is okay, to obtain resources on how to work with your child to continue to meet milestones, and to see what else the SCCDC has to offer all children 0-5. If you child does have a delay, studies show the earlier a delay is recognized and intervention has begun, the better the child's chance of substantial improvement!
