Preschool Screening

KSD 140 provides preschool screening for children with potential delays or disabilities who are three years of age or older. The purpose of the screening is to share with parents their child’s developmental skills in the following areas: fine and gross motor, speech and language, cognition, and pre-readiness concepts. Results of the screening may also identify children who may need further evaluations if a disability is suspected.

For further information or to initiate a screening, please contact our Department of Special Services at 708-532-8537.
