Speech & Hearing Screening Day May 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — heidibug8 @ 7:15 pm

KidWorks is excited to offer another Speech and Hearing Screening Day right here at our clinic on Saturday, May 15, 2010. It will be hosted by KidWorks’ very own speech therapists.

KidWorks has embarked on a community outreach mission, to educate the community and identify children with speech and language disorders at an early age. Early in-tervention has become an important tool in decreasing the number of children in speech therapy in the school age years.

If you, or anyone you know, are questioning whether or not your young child is meeting his or her speech and language developmental milestones, a screening is pertinent to your child’s future. Or, if your child is school-aged and is showing any difficulties in the following areas, a KidWorks speech-pathologist can help you decide if he or she needs help. Here is a list of possible areas of concern:

Following directions
Being understood
Answering and asking questions
Expressing their wants and needs
Hearing
Frustration when communicating
Interacting with peers
Vocabulary
Diet due to being a picky eater
Eating or swallowing
Stuttering or stammering
School work or grades

If you are interested in a screening, call KidWorks at 444-7219 to schedule an appointment. Screenings will take approximately 15-20 minutes and cost $25 per child.
