Somonauk #432 Preschool Screening What is Preschool Screening? To help identify children ages 3-5 who may qualify for special education services Somonauk CUSD 432 offers preschool screening. Our screening team will briefly assess your child’s developmental skills in the areas of pre-academic learning concepts, motor skills, and communication, as well as hearing and vision. If you suspect that your child is experiencing one or more delays in her or his development, please contact James R. Wood Elementary school. Screening dates for the '19-'20 school year To schedule an appointment or ask questions related to screening you can call (815)498-2338 ext 1224. Screenings are held at Somonauk Public Library . Screening appointments are available afternoons on the following dates: October 10, 2019 February 7, 2020 April 3, 2020 What to expect at the screening: Screening consists of three components. Your child will have his/her vision and hearing tested. Family health history may also be reviewed at this time. Your child’s development will be assessed using the Brigance Preschool Screen. Your child’s language and communication skills will then be assessed by a speech pathologist. *Please bring your completed questionnaires with you to your appointment. What happens after screening? Upon completion of the screening, a team member will meet with you to review your child’s results. If your child demonstrated developmentally appropriate skills no further action is required, if the team determines there are areas of concern, a further evaluation may be recommended.
