Speech and Language Screenings

Event date: 
January 08, 2018 (All day)

Grace Preschool is offering Speech and Language Screenings for children three years of age and older.  These screenings will be administered through Dr. Susan Grant’s office. The screenings will take place the week of January 8th during the school day 

The purpose of the screening is to determine if a child needs to be referred for a more complete evaluation of language skills and academic readiness skills. The following areas of language will be included in this screening: articulation (clarity of speech), expressive language ability (use of language to express ideas and needs), receptive language ability (understanding and comprehending language), and auditory processing (listening skills).

If you have concerns about your child’s language skills you may want to take advantage of this screening. Please speak to your classroom teacher if you have any questions or to see if your child would benefit from this screening.

A form from Dr. Grant’s office has been sent home in your child’s backpack. If you would like to have your child participate in this screening, please return the form to the Preschool Office. The cost of the screening is $25.00 and checks should be made out to Dr. Susan Grant.
