For children 3 and older, we will be offering speech screenings in October. These are conducted by Carol DeBerardinis, Speech Pathologist, who has been offering this service at CCEP for a number of years. The result of the screening will determine if your child’s skills are currently within developmental expectations or if a more in-depth evaluation is warranted. During the screening your child will be presented with pictures for identification and directed conversational purposes, and be asked to complete sentence repetition tasks and/or receptive and expressive language items. In most cases, the screening will be able to be accomplished within a ten minute time frame.
Watch your child's take-home bag for a permission slip coming later this month. The fee for screening is $15 and checks should be made payable to Carol DeBerardinis.
