Child Outreach

Child Outreach is a free program offered through the Portsmouth School District in partnership with the RI Department of Education.

Our goal is for every child aged three, four and five to participate in this program once every year prior to entering kindergarten.

Children work individually with one of our screeners to complete game-like activities that will provide parents with information about the child's development in the following areas:

  • Vision

  • Hearing

  • General Development

  • Speech-Language Development

  • Social-Emotional Development

The results of the screening are shared with parents, but kept confidential and shared with others only at the request of families.
