    Screening Information

    If you are interested in determining eligibility for one of our Early Childhood programs, click here to make an appointment for our next Early Childhood Screening. The screenings are offered to 3 and 4-year-old children in St. Joseph. During the screening, SJSD staff will carry out assessments related to development including: vision, hearing, health, motor, and language and thinking skills.

    The screening information will be shared with the child's family and is especially important if a parent has concerns about the child's development. The screening is a first step for those interested in SJSD preschool programs. District preschool programs serve 4-year-old children who turn 4 by August 1, 2019 and 3 & 4-year-old children who have delays that qualify them for special services under Missouri law.
