The Lewis County Special Education Cooperative offers developmental screenings for children from birth to age 5 each spring. These FREE screenings help identify students who may need early aid for varying reasons. The screenings cover vision, hearing, speech/language, motor coordination, learning skills, and social and emotional behaviors. A-typical results will be identified by a psychologist and reviewed with parents. Screening dates vary by school districts from March 28th thru May 17th. The screenings are available to all 13 rural co-op districts within Lewis County. To make a screening appointment parents need to contact their local elementary school. These screenings can benefit ANY child. For more information contact Juli Aselton at (360) 748 – 33 - 84.
