JACKSONVILLE, Florida (June 9, 2015)—Keystone Behavioral Pediatrics is offering free developmental screenings on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, for children who may be at risk for delays in language, personal-social, motor, self-care and cognitive skills. Developmental screenings indicate whether children would benefit from a full evaluation.

The screenings will be held at Keystone Behavioral Pediatrics’ offices, 6867 Southpoint Drive N, Jacksonville, Florida 32216, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Appointments are recommended; walk-ins are welcome and will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Screenings address a range of developmental domains, with the goal of identifying potential areas of delay in children as early as possible,” Jennifer Martin, Keystone’s speech pathology program director, said. “When areas at risk for delay are identified early, treatment can begin sooner often leading to improved outcomes.”

In addition to addressing speech and language domains, the screenings on June 17 will also look for potential delays in the areas of self-care and motor skills. “By identifying the underlying developmental skills that need improving, a child will have greater success in functional tasks, independent living and academic achievement,” RJ Navarro, Keystone’s director of rehabilitative medicine, said.

If a screening indicates an area at risk for delay, recommendations will be made to receive a full evaluation of the area(s) identified. Following a complete evaluation, treatment may be recommended. Occupational therapy helps improve gross, fine, visual and neuro motor skills, functional developmental grasp, handwriting, self-care, independent living, motor planning, and sensory integration issues. Speech and language therapy helps to improve areas such as oral motor, articulation, language, fluency and voice skills.
