A screener observes a young child at play

Child development screening Oct. 13

Posted October 2, 2017

Born to Succeed developmental screenings are being offered again this fall for children under age 5 who live in the Plymouth School District.

The next screenings will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13 at Generations, 1500 Douglas Drive. Advance registration is preferred; contact the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County at (920) 892-6706 or email pat@frc-sc.org.

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 Born to Succeed screenings, which have replaced the Child Development Day screenings offered by the Plymouth School 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.
