Early learning screenings available for Grundy youths

The early learning screening from the Grundy County Special Education Cooperative for 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds in Grundy County school districts will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 16 at the Coal City Early Childhood Center at 755 S. Carbon Hill Road in Coal City.

All students inquiring about preschool are required to attend a screening.  ​

The screening process takes about 60 minutes.

Children will be participating in several activities using the screening instrument called the Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning – 4th Edition.

The DIAL-4 will assess children’s speech and language, fine and gross motor skills, vision, hearing and basic concept skills.  

The screening will help determine if a child is experiencing any educational difficulties.  

After a child has completed all assessment categories, parents will have an opportunity to discuss concerns with staff members.  

About two to three weeks after the screening, parents will receive a letter in the mail regarding their child’s performance indicating if they are functioning within normal parameters or if they might be eligible for an at-risk preschool.  

A team member will call parents if more testing is recommended.
