Early Childhood Screening is a “brief, simple procedure used to identify potential health or developmental problems in infants and young children who may need a health assessment, diagnostic assessment or educational evaluation. Screening in early childhood supports children’s readiness for kindergarten and promotes health and development. Screening includes vision and hearing, height and weight, immunization review, large and small muscles, thinking, language and communication skills, as well as social and emotional development” (MDE). They are mandated by the state of Minnesota for all children before they enter kindergarten. Schedule your child’s screening today!
