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.

Areas of Development Screened:

  • Hearing
  • Vision
  • Communication – 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?

A developmental screening is one of most important steps you can take to ensure your child's success in school and beyond. Even if you believe your child is developmentally on track, a developmental screening will provide reassurance that everything is okay. We can provide you with resources for working with your child to ensure that they continue to meet their developmental milestones and give you an opportunity to learn about what the SCCDC has to offer all children ages birth to five. If you child does have a delay, studies show the earlier a delay is recognized and intervention begins, the better the child's chance of substantial improvement!
