Lifesteps will hold a child check on Monday at Walmart, 3100 Oakland Ave., White Township, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Another will be held March 20 at Lifesteps, 1455 Church St., Indiana, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
This is a free screening service for all children from birth to 5 years of age. A Child Check visit takes about 30 minutes to complete, with the results discussed immediately with the parents. The screening examines a child’s development in the areas of playing, talking, seeing, hearing, moving and thinking. Parents are urged to have their children screened so that any developmental problems can be caught at the earliest stage.
Appointments are recommended. Lifesteps’ Child Check screening service is locally funded in part by the Indiana County Endowment of The Pittsburgh Foundation and United Way of Indiana County. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (724) 283-1010, ext. 318, or (800) 225-2010.
