Permission For Screening of Speech and Occupational Therapies
Your child’s early childhood program has agreed to participate in Foothills Creative Beginnings’ (FCB) Early Intervention Screening to identify possible speech and language, fine or gross motor or regulation concerns. We are seeking your permission to screen your son or daughter. This screen should take no more than 10 – 20 minutes to complete and will help determine if Early Intervention Support services provided by FCB may be recommended for your child. Screening usually occurs during programming me at your child’s school or daycare site. If your child will not be in attendance on the scheduled screening day, please inform your child’s teacher to make arrangements for an alternate me. In order for a child to receive services from FCB, there are minimum number of programming hour requirements.If the screening results indicate your child may benefit from Early Intervention services, you will be contacted by one of FCB’s Early Learning Coordinators (ELC) to review and discuss programming and receive therapist information to book an assessment appointment.
Please note, screening and registration must occur prior to September 30, 2020 in order for children to receive services funded through Alberta Education.
