Since children 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
District 84 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 North Elementary School. In addition, all three elementary schools are the site of a state-funded Early Childhood Program for students determined to be at risk for academic failure. For more information about this program, please call 847-678-7962.
Thank you for visiting our website to inquire about our wonderful Preschool for All program. Interested parents will need to contact our Parent Facilitator to set up an appointment for their child to go through a screening process to become eligible. Preschool for All is a needs-based program and students will be invited based on their screening eligibility score.
