Why would I come to Child Development Day?

  • People have a hard time understanding my child
  • Myself and/or others have concerns my child is developing differently
  • My child has difficulty playing with others

What can I expect?
A screening, interview, and observation will be conducted by a school social worker, early childhood teacher, and speech pathologist to answer questions and help guide me with the next steps for my child.

If you have a concern about your child's development and he/she is already enrolled in school, please contact your child's classroom teacher directly to discuss your concerns. Click the button below to sign up for Child Development Days.
