Born to Succeed screener working with child

Developmental screenings feature a variety of fun activities.

Child development screening May 5

Posted April 24, 2017

Born to Succeed developmental screenings are being offered May 5 for children ages six months to 4 years old living in the Plymouth School District.

These free screenings cover language, problem solving, fine and large motor skills, and social interaction. Vision and hearing screens will be performed as appropriate. Screenings take about 45 minutes and are done with parent participation.

The benefits of screening young children include celebrating a child’s development; supporting a child’s school-readiness skills; providing parenting information and resources; and early detection of potential developmental delays.

The next screenings will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, May 5 at Generations, 1500 Douglas Drive. Advance registration is preferred; contact the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County at (920) 892-6706 or email Peggy at pwiedmeyer@frc-sc.org.

The Born to Succeed screenings, which replace the Child Development Day screenings offered by the district, are being conducted thanks to funding from United Way of Sheboygan County and in partnership with the Family Resource Center, the Plymouth School District, Sheboygan County Public Health Department, Birth to Three, Family Connections, Head Start, Mulberry Bush Child Care, and Growing Generations.
