Developmental screening set next week at MHMR

A developmental screening will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon for young children up to age three. Conducted by Early Childhood Intervention, the screening will be held at the McCulloch County MHMR Center located at 209 South Bridge Street in Brady. The Denver Developmental Screening, which takes about 20 minutes to complete, tests a young child in four areas: personal/social skills (playing, eating, dressing, etc.), fine motor skills (ability to manipulate small objects), gross motor skills (running, jumping, etc.) and language development (speech, following instructions, etc.) If a child is found to have two or more delays in one area, there is further testing available through Early Childhood Intervention or referral to the appropriate agency. The purpose of Early Childhood Intervention is to identify and correct as many problems as possible for young children. Early detection of young children’s delays has proven beneficial to the child, parents and teachers. For further information, please feel free to call 1-800-796-2752 or come to the screening site.
