Early Childhood Screening

  • Each month, District 28 offers families in our community the opportunity to attend an early childhood screening as part of Illinois’ Child Find requirement. Child Find is a mandate included in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that requires school districts to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with suspected disabilities in their community.

    Children Ages 3 through 5

    District 28 residents may register a child between ages three through five for a free, developmental screening. Developmental screenings can identify if a child is having difficulties in the areas of hearing, vision, speech-language, fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, cognitive, and/or adaptive skills. All screenings include a parent interview, review of environmental risk factors, completion of norm-referenced rating scales, and an onsite play-based assessment.

    To schedule a screening, please contact Helene Josephson, Administrative Assistant for Young Explorers, at 847-504-3809 or hjosephson@northbrook28.net
