Preschool Screening Schedule for 2017-2018

District 30's preschool screening process is held at Willowbrook School, and is designed to identify preschool age children (3-5 years old) who may benefit from special education support prior to kindergarten. Five developmental areas are included in the screening: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social. Preschool screening dates for 2017-2018 are as follows: Thursday, November 16, 2017; Thursday, January 25, 2018; and Thursday, March 8, 2018.

These areas will be assessed after your child has passed a hearing and vision screening. The developmental screening takes about one hour to complete and is conducted by the school district’s speech-language pathologist, psychologist, occupational therapist, social worker, and school nurse. Parents are encouraged to stay with their child throughout the screening.
