What are Preschool Screenings?
Many parents wonder if their child’s speech and language skills are at the right level for their age. A great way to determine if your child is developing these skills appropriately is to complete a Screening Assessment.
Catherine Rubbi Speech Pathology Services provides Speech and Language screenings to preschools in our local area.
It takes approximately 10 minutes and cost $10 per pre-schooler. The screener looks at how children are saying words and sounds, as well as their comprehension and expression of language. Each parent receives a short report indicating if their child’s performance is what is expected for their age, or if further evaluation is recommended.
This is a great service that you are able to offer the children at your preschool centre. Please contact us to arrange a preschool screening session.
