Young Child Screening Now Underway in Russell

Kansas Education DepartmentA program titled "Count Your Kid In" is once again accepting screening requests in Russell for children from zero to five years of age.

Christina Bourland of USD 407 says the screenings are for any parents who have questions about the development of their child or children.

"If you have any concerns on speech and language, which is usually what we get the calls for - 'my child's not talking, I'm concerned, what can I do?' - and I'm a speech therapist, so then I can help them with that," Bourland said. "You can do vision, hearing, motor - which is like, 'are they walking yet?' - fine motor - crayon holding, those kind of things - and then problem solving."

For more information or to get your child signed up, contact Bourland at Bickerdyke Elementary School.
