Seekonk Child Find

Posted

As part of the Child Find process, the Seekonk Public Schools will be conducting preschool screening for children who will be turning 3 or 4 years of age by August 31, 2021 and are residents of Seekonk.

A development, social skills, and speech and language screening will take approximately one hour and will be held Monday, April 12th and Tuesday, April 13th at Aitken and Martin Schools. This screening serves two purposes; first, it identifies preschool age students who may be in need of special education services. Second, it allows children to be eligible to enter the lottery for available model spots in the Seekonk Public Schools Integrated Preschool Program.

Please feel free to call Aitken School at (508) 336-5230 or Martin School at (508) 336-7558 if you have any questions.
