A free developmental screening for children from birth to age 5 will be held Friday, Oct. 25.
The event will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Payne Elementary.
In case school is delayed or canceled, the screening will be held Nov. 8.
The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early screening is a quick and simple way to identify, at an early stage, possible learning or health concerns so that children can get needed help before starting school.
This screening will be used for checking age-appropriate development in the areas of communication, motor, cognitive, social and adaptive behaviors. The event is coordinated by Help Me Grow, Departments of Education, Paulding County Hospital, Ohio Department of Health, NOCAC, Paulding County EI/DD, Family and Children First Council, Antwerp Local Schools, Paulding Exempted Village Schools and Wayne Trace Local Schools.
Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will be accepted. Call 419-399-4620 or 1-877-473-8166 Ext. 41 for registration information.
The next developmental screening will be Jan. 17 at Paulding and Oakwood elementaries.
