  • Preschool Screenings 2018-2019
    LaGrange Elementary School District 102, in collaboration with Helping Hand, conducts screening for children birth to age 5. The purpose of the preschool screening is to assess those children whose parents have concerns about delays in their child’s development in any of the following areas: vision, hearing, speech and language, fine and gross motor skills, or cognitive development. This is not a general developmental screening nor does it replace your child’s routine visits to the doctor.
