Joint School District #171 will conduct a free developmental screening for 3-5 year old children on Friday, April 26. Screenings will take place in the morning at Orofino Elementary School, and in the afternoon at the Weippe Head Start. Child Find is a service of the State Department of Education and the Orofino school District.

Free vision, hearing, speech and developmental screenings will be conducted to identify children with special needs.

Anyone interested who is worried about a child who may not be meeting similar age peer milestones can call and set up and appointment for any child between the ages of 3-5. The child may have difficulty walking, talking, hearing, learning, or they may have behavior problems that seem significant.

Please call the numbers below to set up an appointment for a free screening.

Weippe/Pierce 208-435-4389; Orofino 208-476-4212.
