Sep 08, 2015 08:15AM ● Published by Bill Gilman
Three- and four-year olds are screened throughout the year at the Dewing School using the DIAL-4 screening instrument. The screening team is comprised of an Early Childhood Specialist, Speech Language Pathologist, and Preschool Teaching Assistants. The team is coordinated by the Assistant Principal and the Special Education Case Manager. At the screening, parents receive brochures and information about child development and have opportunities to speak with specialists in child development regarding any concerns they may have about their child’s development. Children participate in the screening activities within the preschool classroom and have an opportunity to play in a small group to screen communication and social skills.
Parents may request a screening by contacting Ms. Jan Fuller, Assistant Principal, at the Dewing School. After screening, parents receive written summary of their child’s performance. The next screening date is Friday, October 2, 2015.
To schedule an appointment, please contact Jan Fuller, Assistant Principal at the Dewing School at 978-640-7858 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
