As you watch your child grow, you notice when he or she rolls over, holds a spoon or walks and talks. You may also see that he or she is growing or developing differently than a cousin, a friend’s child or a sibling. If you are wondering about your child’s development, call for a free screening.
On November 18, representatives from Tri-County Human Services Early Intervention, Northeastern Educational Early Intervention and Head Start will provide screenings at the CARES offices inside the Susquehanna County Literacy Program, Route 11, New Milford from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Families with children aged birth to four are encouraged to take advantage of this free service.
While there is no cost to participate, you must schedule an appointment. Screenings take about a half hour. To schedule a screening, call Stephnie Thornton, Susquehanna County CARES at (570) 465-5040 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please call by November 14.
With the mission of enhancing quality early childcare and education, Susquehanna County CARES is pleased to join Tri-County Human Services, the NEIU 19 and Head Start in order to provide this important service. It is all part of supporting Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children, because every child is Pennsylvania’s future.
