The Parents As Teachers program will offer free developmental screenings later this month at the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative.

A press release from Sedalia 200 says the screenings are for children age 3 months to 5 years old. The screenings are scheduled to take place January 16-17 at the Pettis County Early Childhood Co-op, located at 2255 S. Ingram Ave.

Screenings are by appointment only and eligible children must be residents of Pettis County and not yet in kindergarten.

The areas to be screened include speech, vision, hearing, language, readiness and motor skills. In addition, there is a health questionnaire.

To schedule an appointment and for more information, call the co-op at 827-8955.
