LaGrange Elementary School District 102, in collaboration with Helping Hand, is conducting a screening for children from 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. 

  • 2 yrs 10 months to 5 - will be screened by District 102

  • Birth to 2 yrs 10 months – will be screened by Helping Hand, in collaboration with District 102.

Parents are asked to complete a questionnaire for each child as the first step.  Based on the results, you will be notified if your child should attend a screening.  Screenings occur approximately every other month. Depending on the results of the screening, your child could potentially be considered for the following:

  • Early Intervention Services (Birth to 3) if determined by Helping Hand

  • Vision and hearing referrals to your private practitioner (Ages 3-5)

  • Fine and gross motor recommendation for home activities

  • Pre-Kindergarten At-Risk Programs – programs providing school for children ages 3-5 determined to be at-risk for achieving educational success.  

  • Early Childhood Special Education – screening team will refer children identified as experiencing significant developmental delays for further evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.
