Tewksbury Public Schools Preschool Screening Next Month

Dec 06, 2018 05:38AM


Tewksbury Public Schools conducts periodic developmental screenings for three-and four-year old children. This screening is designed to review a child’s development and to assist in identifying children who should be referred for an evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.

The Tewksbury Integrated Preschool conducts screenings throughout the year and uses the DIAL-4 screening instrument. The screening team is comprised of an Early Childhood Specialist, Speech and Language Pathologist and Preschool Teaching Assistants. The team is coordinated by the Assistant Principal/Preschool Coordinator. At the time of the screening, parents receive information about child development and also have the opportunity to speak with specialists 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 Mrs. Alexis Bosworth, Assistant Principal/Preschool Coordinator. After screening, parents will receive a written summary of their child’s performance. The next screening date is Friday, January 25th. To schedule an appointment, please contact Alexis Bosworth, Assistant Principal/Preschool Coordinator at the Dewing School at 978-640-7858 or by email at
