These FREE Developmental Screenings is for children ages 6-months to 4 years old.
The goal of a community developmental screening event is to give parents and caregivers another opportunity to discuss their child's development with trained staff, share activities to foster healthy development, and connect families to community resources in Sheboygan County.
During the event, families check in and fill out a simple questionnaire about their child’s development, called an Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). Families are then introduced to a trained staff member who goes through the information that they filled out, answers any additional questions the family may have, and connects them to community resources.
There are many benefits to Developmental Screening:
- Celebrate your child's development
- Support your child's school readiness skills
- Provide parenting information and resources
- Early detection of developmental delays
Screenings include language, problem-solving, social, fine and large motor skills. If age appropriate, there will also be vision screenings.
