Irene-Wakonda School District
to conduct preschool screenings Developmental preschool screening for children ages 3 to 5 years (pre-kindergarten) will be conducted on Friday, April 24 at the Irene-Wakonda Elementary School site. Children are invited to participate in a free developmental screening for gross motor skills, fine motor skills, communication, concepts, hearing and health. Developmental screening gives information about how your child learns skills that are important in predicting success in school. Screening helps to identify if your child's skills are appropriate for his/her age or if further testing may be needed. Preschool teachers, speech/language pathologists, school nurses, administrators and support staff will conduct screening with input from other service agencies. Developmental screening for children age birth to 36 months is also available by special appointment. Make your appointment for screening by contacting the Irene-Wakonda Elementary School office at 267-2644. The screenings are a joint effort of the Irene-Wakonda School District, Southeast Area Cooperative, and Birth to Three Connections.
