Libby Schools offer free screening services

Print Article

The Libby Public Schools Child Find and Early Intervention Services offers free preschool screening services.

All children aged 5 and under in the Libby Public School District, including public school, private school and home school children, receive free screening in the areas of cognitive skills, fine and gross motor skills, speech, language, hearing and vision.

Following the screening, parents or guardians will be contacted with the results and further testing will be completed if needed.

When testing is complete, the school will contact people if the child is eligible for Early Intervention Preschool or Special Education Services in the public schools.

Early Intervention Preschool is an individualized program that meets one to three days a week designed to provide services to children from 3-5 years of age who are developmentally delayed in any of the tested areas.

Speech and language therapy may be provided for children in preschool through high school grade levels even if they are not enrolled in public schools.

If a child does not pass a Child Find screening, parents will be notified and a comprehensive assessment may be conducted to determine if the student qualifies for services in the public schools under Montana state criteria.

For more information, call 406-293-2700.
