Screenings

What is a screening?

 

A screening is an opportunity for parents and professionals to find out how a child is developing in comparison to other children the same age.

Developmental Areas Screened:

  • Hearing
  • Vision
  • Communicating – How does your child follow directions? How well can your child make himself/herself understood?
  • Fine Motor – How your child uses his/her hands to eat or use a crayon.
  • Gross Motor – How a child moves, climbs, catches a ball, etc.
  • Social/Emotional – How does your child play with other children and interact with adults? How does your child change from one activity to another?
  • Self Help – How does your child take care of himself/herself in the areas of eating, dressing, and toileting?
  • Cognitive – How does your child solve everyday problems?

Ideally, your child needs at least one developmental screening before the age of two, and at least another one before the age of five is essential.  Click on the following link to see the video for state wide screenings.  CDS of Wyoming, State Wide Commercial


Sweetwater County Child Development Center (SCCDC) supports developmental preschools throughout the state of Wyoming.

There are a total of 14 regions and Sweetwater County is number 7. The “1 before 2” campaign is a statewide marketing effort that encourages parents to have their infants and preschool children screened for developmental delays. 

The SCCDC screening numbers have continued to increase since the beginning of this ad campaign in 2003.
