Preschool Screenings are designed to identify developmental concerns which may interfere with success in school if not treated early. This will help determine if a preschooler may benefit from special education assistance prior to enrollment in kindergarten. Preschool screenings are not for determining Kindergarten readiness. For all questions regarding typical Kindergarten enrollment, please contact the Winkelman school office.
Students who live within the District 31 boundaries can be screened in the areas of speech and language, concept development, and or motor development. Vision and hearing screenings are also available. The screenings take about one hour to complete. They are conducted by the school district’s speech clinician's, learning specialists, school psychologists and school nurses.
Parents are welcome to stay with their child throughout the screenings. District services can begin with early identification of students who may be eligible for future support. Child find activities can be initiated as early as 2-1/2 years of age, in anticipation of a child's third birthday.
To make an appointment for a screening, call District 31’s Administrative Assistant for the Director of Student Services, Meghan Swift at 847-313-4414. For more information about preschool screenings, you may contact District 31’s Director of Student Services, Beth Parker at 847-313-4421.
