Montessori Community School will be holding speech and language screenings Thursday, September 10th. The screenings will be a general, brief measure of your child's speech and language skills in order to determine if further speech and language evaluations are needed. Screenings are appropriate for students of all ages.
Please return form and check made payable to Let's Talk should be submitted to MCS by Wednesday, September 9th.
The Speech and language screenings will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. After the completion of the screening, Let's Talk will identify if there are concerns regarding your child's speech and language skills. A note will be sent home with your child regarding the results of the screening assessments and if further assessment is warranted.
