Developmental Screening and Your Child

 Students during reading time  Children experimenting with various objects.

Did you know that the highest rate of brain development occurs during the first five years of a child’s life?  Research demonstrates that the “wait and see” response to concerns about development is NOT the way to go.  Early intervention is the key to long term success.  But how do we know if our children are meeting the developmental milestones identified as appropriate to their age level?  By answering age-specific questions via the Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ) —a free screening tool available through Wheaton-Warrenville Community Unit School District -- you can see if your child’s developmental progress is on schedule.

District 200 also offers a developmental screening for Birth-to-5-year old children at Jefferson Early Childhood Center.  Here are your first steps.

It takes less than 20 minutes to make sure your child is reaching his or her developmental milestones.   

Here’s what to do:

If your child is between the ages of Birth - 5 and you live in Wheaton/Warrenville Illinois School District #200 please use this free online screening tool or call us at 630 682 2109. We will be in touch with you about the screening results and follow-up options within two weeks.  Utilizing this process does not obligate you to follow-through with any of the options suggested.  

We know what’s possible when kids get the support they need.  We can give every child an equal opportunity to learn and grow— but it’s important for children to get the help they need in the critical years before they turn five.
