Child Check

Child check screenings are offered by Olentangy Schools as a resource to parents to help identify any developmental concerns that may exist for a child. Children may participate in the screening if they are turning three years of age within 45 days of the screening date and are a resident of the district.

Child check is a developmental screening for children ages 3-5 and provides information about a child’s current development in the areas of motor, language, concept, self-help and social-emotional development. Informal vision and hearing screenings are also conducted as part of the screening.

The screenings are held at Shanahan Preschool in the morning on the dates listed below. Screenings are conducted by our team of special needs preschool staff. A parent must be on site during the screening which last approximately 90 minutes. Shanahan Preschool is located at 814 Shanahan Road, Lewis Center OH 43035.

Screening results are mailed to parents within two weeks. Results may show the child is age-appropriate and no follow-up is needed OR the child has a potential delay and may need additional follow-up and next steps.
