School Readiness

EVALUATE YOUR CHILD BEFORE STARTING SCHOOL

Several studies have consistently shown that many young children with clinically significant developmental delays are not detected until the early school years. As a result, important early intervention opportunities for young children at risk of developing problems may be delayed or not pursued at all. This can lead to varying combinations of academic and/or social school related struggles.
KShield School Readiness Screening is accessible, easy to implement, and can make all the difference.

KShield School Readiness not only provides accurate developmental screening, but also combines live video consultations and interviews with experienced therapists, ASQ-3* screening tools and scoring, and multidisciplinary team assessments that result in educational guidelines and recommendations for intervention activities that parents and caregivers can use before the child enrolls in school.

Is Your Child Ready for Preschool?

An important component of deciding when to begin preschool is determining a child’s “preschool readiness”. Each child develops at a different rate, so no matter what the “typical” preschool age might be, there are a number of developmental aspects to consider.

The KShield School Readiness gives you an accurate idea of whether your child is developing on track and will enable you to pick the right preschool based on their strengths and weaknesses. A child’s success and happiness can be greatly influenced by the right curriculum and school environment.
