 Popular School Screening Packages

 *All screenings are performed by certified speech language pathologists and occupational therapists with extensive knowledge in childhood development and school readiness skills.

  • A speech therapist is concerned with your child’s ability to communicate with others. The articulation screening assesses how well your child produces speech sounds and if they are speaking as clearly as they should be for their age. The language screening looks at your child’s use and understanding of language. You can use the following questions to guide you in determining if your child would benefit from an articulation and/or language screening:

    • Does your child have difficulty understanding and following directions?
    • Does your child seem to ignore or “tune out” when others are speaking?
    • Does your child prefer to play alone as opposed to group play with other children?
    • Does your child have difficulty producing grammatically correct sentences or using pronouns appropriately?
    • Does your child have difficulty communicating his or her thoughts or become frustrated when trying to express ideas?
    • Do others outside your family have difficulty understanding your child when he or she speaks?
    • Does your child have difficulty answering questions that include “where, who, what, etc.”?
    • Does your child have difficulty describing recent events or telling about past experiences?
    • Does your child have difficulty engaging verbally and interacting with peers?
  • An occupational therapy screening includes screening of your child’s functional skills that are needed to complete their daily activities such as playing, learning, and taking care of themselves. Areas assessed include: visual motor skills, visual perceptual skills, fine and gross motor abilities, and social and interpersonal skills.

    Fine Motor Skills are necessary to perform activities that involve manipulating items using the small muscles of the hands and fingers, such as opening a door.

    Bilateral coordination tasks involve using both hands to complete a task, such as stringing beads.

    Visual motor skills involve the use of the eyes and hands together to complete a task.   Many early academic and self-care tasks involve the use of fine motor and visual motor skills, such as cutting, drawing and coloring, manipulating fasteners, and completing puzzles.

    Visual perception is our ability to visually interpret the surrounding environment. This skill is necessary for early academic and self-care tasks such as matching shapes, colors, and letters, and copying patterns (such as block designs).

    Gross motor skills involve activities that use the larger muscles of the body to complete, such as running, jumping, and kicking a ball. Strength, balance, and coordination are necessary skills to complete age appropriate gross motor tasks.

    You can use the following questions to guide you to see if your child would benefit from an occupational therapy screening:

    • Does your child have difficulty with fine motor activities, such as cutting, holding a writing utensil correctly, or manipulating fasteners (such as snaps and buttons)?
    • Does your child have difficulty with social skills or interpersonal skills, such as attention, taking turns or playing appropriately with other children?
    • Does your child have difficulty navigating playground equipment or seem clumsy?
    • Does your child seem to avoid or dislike activities that seem enjoyable to a majority of their peers?
    • Is your child overly sensitive to any sensory experiences such as smells, textures, foods, movement, or noise? Do they seek out excessive sensory experiences in any of the above categories that interfere with daily activities?
    • Does your child have difficulty with transitions or following a routine at home or school?
    • Does your child have difficulty with coordination tasks, such as throwing or kicking a ball?
    • Does your child have difficulty completing visual motor tasks such as puzzles, copying shapes, or matching games?
  • A developmental screening would include screening of all areas of your child’s development, including vision, hearing, articulation, language, fine and gross motor abilities, visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills, and social and interpersonal skills. If you have concerns in multiple areas of your child’s development, this would be an appropriate screening to choose.
