VERNON PRESCHOOL SCREENINGS
All public-school systems in Connecticut are responsible for the identification of all children who may be eligible to receive special education services three years of age or older as part of Child Find. The Vernon Public School System will now be offering preschool developmental screenings for current Vernon resident children ages 2.9 months to 4.5 months, to ensure all children receive appropriate services and supports prior to entering Kindergarten.
The screening activities are designed to observe and assess a child’s development in problem-solving and thinking skills as demonstrated in play, language and communication, social interaction and adaptive behavior and fine/gross motor skills and abilities. During the 1-hour screening session, the preschool team will interact with and observe each child in a variety of activities. Following the student activities, families will receive feedback in the mail or a phone call from a team member.
