The Southern Door School District will be holding a Child Development Day next month. On Thursday, March 7th, the district will screen children ages 2 years 6 months to 4 years 6 months to help parents become aware of several different areas of development. During the play-based assessment, children will be screened for issues regarding to communication, grow motor and fine motor skills, cognition and social skills. Ann Deprey, a speech-language pathologist at Southern Door, said the service is designed to identify the potential needs of students before they start attending school.
Parents who plan on attending the screening with their child will need to ensure their child is on the Southern Door census. A mailing will be sent out in later this month to all parents with children in the tested age range with more information.
