The Francis Howell School District provides a
free developmental screening for 3-5 year-olds. It is recommended that all
children are screened yearly, beginning at age 3 and prior to entering
kindergarten. The DIAL 4 Developmental Screening is intended to help parents
determine the areas of experience that would best prepare their child, to
provide an opportunity to have intervention where indicated in the screening,
and to provide the District with valuable information on the best possible
education for your child.
This free screening examines three areas of
development: motor, concepts, and language. Children will also have the
opportunity to be screened in vision and hearing. The entire process of
screening and parent conference takes approximately an hour and a half.
To make an appointment for your child’s
developmental screening, please call the Early Childhood Family Education
Center on Hackmann Road at 636-851-6200, Central School Road at 636-851-6400,
or Meadows Parkway at 636-851-6000.
