Orange preschool screening
Residents of the Orange City School District who have children ages 3-5 (who will not be attending kindergarten fall 2021) may attend a preschool screening at the Orange Inclusive Preschool on Jan. 22, Feb. 5, Feb. 19 or March 5 from 9-11:30 a.m. or 1-3 p.m.
This screening is for parents who would like their child to be a typical peer or are interested in knowing more about their child’s development. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, OIP will hold all screenings via Zoom. Each child will receive a link upon scheduling their screening assessment. Families will receive all required paperwork prior to the screening for completion.
The screening will assess children in the areas of cognitive, motor and language skills as well as adaptive functioning and social/emotional behavior. Parents will receive results of the assessment within two weeks of the screening. Screening is a tool to gauge a child’s development. Participation is not mandatory but required for a child to be considered as a peer for the OIP program. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 216-831-8600, ext. 5605.
