A screener high-fiving a child

The free developmental screenings cover language, problem solving, social interaction, and fine and large motor skills.

Developmental screenings available Oct. 10-11

Posted September 30, 2019

Free developmental screenings are being offered this fall for area children ages 6 months through 5 years.

These free screenings cover language, problem solving, social interaction, and fine and large motor skills. Vision and hearing screenings will be performed as appropriate.

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

The next screenings will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday Oct. 10 and from 8 a.m. to noon Friday Oct. 11 at Generations, 1500 Douglas Drive. Advance registration is required; contact the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County at (920) 892-6706 or email PAT@frc-sc.org.

The screenings are conducted by the Sheboygan County Community Partnership for Children with support from Plymouth School District, Family Resource Center, United Way of Sheboygan County, Sheboygan County Public Health Department, Sheboygan Early Learning Center, Head Start, Birth to Three, Family Connections, and the Lions Club.
