Please enter through The Welcome Center Door #1. What age should my child be screened at? If your child is between the ages of 3 and 5, it is time to schedule his/her Early Childhood Screening to check all areas of development including hearing, vision, speech, and motor abilities. What if my child has already been screened? If a child has been screened and the parent or guardian can provide sufficient documentation that demonstrates that a comparable screening has been completed, even if the screening was completed in another state, that child does not need to be re-screened. A screening is considered comparable to Early Childhood Screening if it meets the Minnesota ECS program standards and was completed between the time a child turned three and entered kindergarten, or within 30 days of kindergarten entrance.
