Next Screening: August 26-27, 2015

Registration for this screening begins July 20, 2015

 

 

District 15 conducts pre-school screening for children between the ages of 2 years 10 months and 5 years (not in kindergarten) of age to identify students who may be eligible for either the Prekindergarten At Risk Program or Early Childhood Special Education. Children identified through the screening as experiencing difficulty in the areas of Cognitive Development, Speech and Language Skills, Social Emotional Development, Gross and Fine Motor Skills, or in Vision and Hearing may be referred for further evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.

 

The preschool screening is not intended as a screening for regular Kindergarten admission. All scheduled preschool screenings for the 2015-2016 are conducted at the Marquardt School District Office, 1860 Glen Ellyn Road, Glendale Heights, IL 60139. The screening takes approximately one hour and a half. Parents will be asked to complete a developmental profile for each child who is screened.

 

Children who were screened in previous years do not need to be screened again this year unless so advised, or if parents have new or additional concerns.

 

If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call Lydia Gonzalez, Special Education Secretary, at 630- 469-7615 x 1161.
