We are partnering with local preschools to provide free developmental screens to registered students! While returning back to school has been an adjustment post-pandemic, nearly all of our normal structures and routines have been abolished or transformed into something different. New routines, processes, requirements, and expectations are in place.
To assist in clarifying some of the uncertainty, questions, or concerns you may have regarding your child’s developmental milestones we are happy to provide these screens free of charge. To make the screeners accessible, we are available immediately in February and March and will come directly to your child’s preschool and administer them on-site.
I feel incredibly lucky to work and build relationships with the schools in our community and am appreciative to have the staff and administrators’ continued support and trust in me and my team over the years.
We are thrilled to be adding to our scope of services! If you have any questions or would like to see these services implemented at your child’s school, please email or call our office at contact@sdkidsfirst.com / (858) 692-4187 and we will be happy to help you!
As our team of professionals continues to grow, I am so grateful to be a part of such a cohesive and collaborative group. I am very proud of the work the clinicians at San Diego Kids First provide to our families and will continue to personally consult with all of my staff clinicians on a regular basis.
