VALPARAISO | Opportunity Enterprises’ early intervention program, All About Kids, will be offering free developmental screenings from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday and Nov. 8 at 3101 Evans Ave. The free screenings are for children from birth to three years of age and can identify children who have missed developmental milestones like crawling, walking, talking, and interacting socially.

Parents interested in having their child’s development evaluated are asked to schedule a developmental screening with the therapists of All About Kids. “A child's learning and development occur most rapidly from birth to 3 years of age,” said Brenda Jankowski, All About Kids Director. “The earlier a child who has been experiencing a delay gets services, the better the chances of bringing that child within a typical range of development.” If further evaluation is needed, families will be referred to Indiana First Steps to determine funding eligibility for their child to receive therapy.

To schedule an appointment, call (219) 462-0786.
