Wrenshall Public School District

Early Childhood Screening

A quick check to see how a child is growing and developing.

Description

Early Childhood Screening is for children between the ages of three and the start of kindergarten. However, it is best to screen between the ages of three and four. The screening is used to see if there are any health or learning concerns that may need a referral for further evaluation by a doctor or a speech, developmental or physical therapist. A parent perspective, on how the child is developing, is always taken into account when discussing referral information.

If you or your child does not speak English, ask the district where you live to provide an interpreter.

Parents will complete a social and emotional development questionnaire about their child.

Screening is required before or within 30 days of entering Minnesota's public school district or kindergarten. It is also required before or within the first 90 days of entering public school district prekindergarten programs.
