Medfield, MA: Preschool screening for special needs voluntary

Sept 27, 2018, Wicked Local, Medfield, MA: Medfield Public Schools to hold preschool screenings http://medfield.wickedlocal.com/news/20180927/medfield-public-schools-to-hold-preschool-screenings Medfield Public Schools will conduct screenings of preschool-aged children throughout the school year at Memorial School. Massachusetts Special Education Law requires that each school district conduct screenings as part of a “child find process” in order to identify those children in need of special education support. Medfield Public Schools uses preschool screening as the first step in the process. The screening is voluntary and is for children ages 2 years and 9 months up to the age of 5 years old and is designed to review a child’s development and to assist in the identification of children who should be referred for an evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.
