FDLRS Child Find (Ages 3 - 5)

  • Provides Awareness Opportunities to ensure the public and parents are given information on milestones as to the approximate age when a child should perform certain developmental skills. Many problems that can affect a child’s learning can go undetected until a child reaches school age and precious time is wasted.
  • FREE Screenings are provided to children ages 3 to 5, not attending public school, who may experience difficulty in any of the following areas: seeing, talking, hearing, learning, physical/motor or emotional/behavioral.
  • Evaluation Services are provided through the Lee and Collier County Public School systems if developmental concerns are identified through the screening.
  • Questions? Call our main FDLRS number: 239-337-8363.
