Infants up to age 5 can be screened for development, behavior, language, vision and hearing

WHAT: Early intervention screenings will cover dental, vision, language, hearing, behavior, speech, growth, cognitive and motor skills for children ages 6 months to 5 years. Many children have a developmental or behavioral disability, or have delays in language, speech or other areas. Left unaddressed, these delays can affect their readiness for school. With proper early intervention, a child can overcome a wide range of developmental, behavioral and learning problems for a brighter future.

WHO: The screening event is a collaborative effort of Children’s Medical Services, Capital Area Chapter of the Florida Association of Infant Mental Health, United Way of the Big Bend, Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend, Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources Center, Whole Child Leon, Early Steps, Leon County Schools, Florida Department of Children and Families, the Dick Howser Center for Childhood Services, Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College and more.
