This Prescreening Checklist is a quick, organized way of helping you recognize possible problem areas in a child’s vision, hearing, and development. The chart will help you to look at the whole child. You will be watching for the child’s development in the areas of thinking skills, social skills, listening and talking skills, and activity skills.
Kindering receives limited state, federal, and school district funding toward the costs of Early Intervention services. We also bill private insurance and Medicaid for therapy costs. Parents are responsible for applicable deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance. Donations from foundations, individuals, and United Way help support the availability of Early Intervention for all families. Services are available regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
