The PURPOSE of the Early Childhood Clinic is to screen children from birth to age 6 in a wide variety of developmental areas to provide information to parents about their child’s development.

Screenings are provided by trained professionals to look at development, speech, hearing, vision, and social skills.

Families served by Independent School may register for any clinics regardless of the location of the clinic.


Independent School District is responsible for Child Find identification and evaluation for all students suspected of having a disability residing in our district. This includes children birth through 21 years of age who are in public schools, private schools, are being home schooled, or are kindergarten eligible, but not enrolled. Early identification and intervention is essential to help ensure school success.  Please note for individuals age 19, 20 or 21, the availability of special education and related services may be limited by school district policy.
If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, behavior, is experiencing slow development typical for his/her age, physical impairments, or learning difficulty, he/she may be a child with a disability.
