Parents As Teachers scheduling preschool developmental screenings for 3- to 5-year-olds

January 22, 2014 

Getting ready for school starts well before kindergarten, and parents of preschoolers have a variety of ways to help their children be prepared. The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Parents As Teachers program encourages local parents to schedule free preschool screenings for their 3- to 5-year-olds.

Parents As Teachers are currently scheduling developmental screenings. To schedule your child’s screening, call 816-986-2486. For more information, you may also visit the Parents As Teachers website at

Screenings provide parents with an opportunity to see where their child’s progress fits in with standardized measures of child development. Health, hearing and vision screenings are also provided.

The developmental screenings highlight the strengths and abilities of each child and usually reassure parents that their children are meeting developmental milestones within expected age ranges. If delays are identified that may affect future learning, parents can be referred to resources that will provide help for their child.
