Free child development screening comes to Summit
SUMMIT, Miss. -- A team of early childhood specialists with the Early Years Network’s Special Needs program will conduct a free Developmental Screening Day on July 15 in Pike County.
The screenings will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Southwest Mississippi Community College Simmons Building, located at 100 College Drive in Summit.
Children 6 months to 5 years will be checked for age-specific physical and educational milestones at no cost to parents.
The screening is ideal for children whose parents, physicians, child care providers or pre-K teachers have concerns regarding developmental milestones. To register, call Leslie LaVergne at 601-266-6225.
