Since children with special needs may need extra help to reach their potential, the screenings for children from birth to age three focus on providing early identification of children in need of services. If the screening indicates a need for services, parents will be provided with a resource guide of excellent programs within the community. While all children are different, a significant developmental difference from children the same age may indicate the need for early intervention. For further information, please call (888) 566-8228.
Screening for Children from Three to Five Years Old
The Leyden Area Special Education Cooperative provides screenings for children between the ages of three to five to determine if they qualify for special education services. The Early Childhood Special Education Program is held at Pietrini Elementary School. North Elementary School is the site of a state-funded Early Childhood Program for students determined to be at risk for academic failure. For more information for this program, please call North School at 847-678-7962
