All preschoolers with parent consent will be screened during the session.
In 2006 Kara Dodds, M.S., CCC-SLP (speech pathologist) created a speech and language screening 3 phase protocol providing free trainings to teachers and free screenings to preschool and school-aged children, which is funded by a grant from the Autism Tree Project Foundation.
Once the screening is complete, each child receives the following:
1. A written summary of results along with any recommendations.
2. Recommendations for Occupational services or Physical services
3. Recommendations for classroom adaptations
The goal of this program is to identify preschoolers with language or motor delays so that families can be facilitated in obtaining diagnosis and the necessary intervention for their children as early as possible.
This screening is unique as it includes training for teachers & directors. Occupational & physical therapy screenings are also provided when needed. There is no cost to families or preschools for any of these services.
