This free screening will be held on Friday, January 13, 2017 at the Woodland School, 80 Powder Mill Road, Southwick, MA.

The screening is a brief survey of a child’s growth in several different areas (i.e. readiness skills, speech/language, hearing and vision). This screening is provided for several reasons:
1. to provide families with information on how their child
is developing in relation to other children of similar age,
2. to help identify children who may need additional assistance in one of the above developmental areas, &
3. it’s a prerequisite for enrollment as a peer partner in the
Public School’s Preschool Program.
Southwick-Tolland-Granville Regional School District offers a high quality integrated preschool program that is language-based. It is reasonably priced and has a payment plan. If you are interested in placing your child in this preschool setting, please sign up for a free screening and make an appointment to visit our program.
