It’s time for Carroll County pre-school screenings.

The screenings are free of charge and give parents a measure of how their child is developing and how they can help their child learn even more.

Testing includes vision and hearing, motor, language and cognitive development.

During an exit conference, parents will be given an overview of how their child did as well as information about educational opportunities and free preschool programs.

Each school district in Carroll County is scheduling screening appointments for children who will be 3 or 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2019.

If you are not able to attend the screening in your district, you can make an appointment in any district and results will be sent to your district for their eligibility list.

Parents interested in how their children ages 4 months to 2-1/2 years are developing should call the Right Steps Family Center at 815-273-7532 to set up a testing appointment at time and place convenient for you.

Screenings are provided by Early Step Pre-school, Right Steps Family Center, Carroll County school districts, Bi-County Special Education and TCOC Head Start.

Parents interested in how their children ages 4 months to 2 ½ years are developing should call the Right Steps Family Center at 815-273-7532 to set up a testing appointment at a time and place convenient for you.
