Yes. A certified speech language pathologist will visit the preschool to conduct a speech and language screening which assesses expressive/receptive language, articulation, fluency and voice. The screening will also entail a hearing screening to identify a possible hearing loss that could interfere with the child’s communication skills and future school performance.
These are just screenings and should not be viewed as a complete evaluation. If a child does not pass a section, it may indicate the need for further evaluation of that particular area by a speech language pathologist or audiologist.
