Free Developmental Screenings March 19th February 19, 2011

March is Read Across America monthin celebration of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday.

The Arizona Literacy & Learning Center will have a FREE Developmental Screening planned for March 19th.

The purpose of a screening is not to diagnose but to identify a child’s strength and needs. We look for age‐appropriate development in each area and identify the need for further evaluation or monitoring.  By identifying concerns early we are able to work with the parent, care-giver and/or school to help resolve the developmental concern so the child has the necessary skills to enter kindergarten.
WHAT: FREE Developmental/Literacy Screenings for children ages of 3-5.
WHEN: March 19, 2011 *By Appointment Only.
Children will be screened in:
Hearing
Vision
Speech (articulation)/Language
Concepts
Gross/Fine Motor Skills
Pre-Literacy Skills
Social/Self Help Development

Screenings help rule out potential problems and provide insight at an early age. Addressing concerns early is a very effective way to avoid later educational struggles.

Arizona Literacy & Learning Center
14001 N. 7th Street Suite, F-112
