Child Check Developmental Screening

Greenland * New Castle * Newington * Rye
New Hampshire

As part of the CHILDFIND services, the school districts of SAU 50 offer a free developmental screening for all preschool children residing in the towns of Greenland, New Castle, Newington, and Rye.  This screening is available to children between three and five years of age and is designed to identify preschoolers with special needs which may result in an educational disability as defined by the New Hampshire Rules for the Education of Children with Disabilities.  The screening takes approximately forty-five minutes and consists of a developmental survey in the areas of motor skills, communication skills, and cognitive skills.  Please note this screening only applies to children whose parents have some concerns about their child’s growth and development.

CHILDFIND is designed for children whose developmental status is of concern at this time.  It is not related to kindergarten admission.  If parents have any concerns regarding the appropriateness of this screening for their child, it may be helpful to check with their pediatrician or preschool teachers. 

This child’s performance will be shared with parents.  If indicated, the special education team will review options for further evaluation and possible determination of an educational disability.  All information about the child will be kept confidential.

CHILDFIND screenings are conducted at our Community School of SAU 50 located within the Greenland Central School at 70 Post Road in Greenland.  To schedule a screening, please contact our Student Information and Support Secretary, Diane Peterson, at the SAU 50 office by calling 603-422-9572.
