Forsyth County Schools' (FCS) Special Education Department is responsible for locating, identifying, and evaluating any children with known or suspected disabilities who reside within the school district’s boundaries.
FCS is offering free monthly screenings for children ages 3 to 5 (prior to entering kindergarten) to determine the need for early intervention support and services. Your child will be screened for hearing and vision, articulation and language, motor skills, cognitive skills, and adaptive/social skills. This screening will last approximately one hour, and parents must be present with their child at all times. The team will consist of special education personnel, an audiologist, and a speech-language pathologist.
- Are you concerned about your child’s speech and language development?
- When your child is playing with his/her peers, does he/she seem to be behind in play skills or social interaction?
- Is your child struggling with pre-academic skills such as recognizing his/her name, colors, shapes, letters?
- Is your child unable to manipulate simple playground equipment or classroom writing/art materials?
Developmental Screenings will be held monthly from 9-12 at Almon C. Hill Center. You must call to schedule an appointment.
