Franciscan Health offers free neurodevelopmental screening
May 18 09:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Franciscan Health Fitness Centers Schererville - Schererville
Parents who are concerned about their child’s development are invited to reserve their spot for a free neurodevelopmental screening provided by Franciscan Health pediatric therapy.
The screenings will be 9AM to 1PM on Saturday, May 18 at Franciscan Health Fitness Centers, 221 S. Route 41 in Schererville. Parents of children from newborn to 8 years old can reserve a screening by calling (219) 322-1600. The screenings will last 15 to 30 minutes, and a recommendation will be made for an in-depth evaluation if needed.
Parents may have questions about their child’s development, but don’t know where to turn. Concerns might be caused if a child has difficulty lifting their head; if a child is clumsy; if a child walks on their toes; if a child favors one side of their body; if a child has trouble grasping and using objects; or if they are not physically keeping up with other children their age.
Franciscan Health’s experienced physical and occupational therapists can answer questions about a child’s development and determine if the child would benefit from further evaluation and treatment.
