About Early Childhood Screening

Screening is a FREE service for all Moorhead Area Public Schools children.

Early Childhood Screening is required in the State of Minnesota. This screening can be completed any time after age 3 and prior to starting a public school. The ideal time for screening is between ages 3 and 4. At the screening, a simple check of vision, hearing, height, weight and development will be completed. This screening will help identify children who may benefit from resources to help in their development. Screening typically takes about 1 hour and you will stay with your child during the entire screening process. 

Screening is by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Review the available days and choose a time that works best for you and your child. When scheduling, plan for a time that does not interrupt nap or meal routine as this interruption can affect your child's responses during the screening process. 

You will receive a confirmation email with more details regarding your child's appointment. If you do not receive this email, you are not scheduled. If you have any difficulties or concerns regarding this appointment process, please contact our office for assistance.
