 Developmental Screenings for Ages 0-5

Child Check is a free developmental screening for children ages 0-5 to check a child's learning, speaking, moving, seeing and hearing skills. Since all children develop differently, parents may wonder if their child is on the right track. If a child needs further evaluation, a referral will be made to the appropriate service. In that case, developmental screenings are included as part of the program. 

Child Checks are held regularly at the Futures Unlimited Family Support Center at 15 Industrial Ave, Wellington, KS.

Checks are provided at no cost and by appointment only.

Remember, each child is different and may learn and grow at a different pace. These differences may or may not be cause for concern. If you have any concerns or would just like to make sure your child is on the right track developmentally, call and schedule a free screening.

Please note: screening information will be kept on file for each child no longer than one (1) year from date of screening.
