Early Access Free Autism Screening in Claremore
The Oklahoma Early Access Autism Project, funded in part through a contract with the Oklahoma Developmental Disabilities Council, partners with local communities to offer monthly autism screenings and awareness throughout the state. The goal of the project is to reach young children who may not have access to traditional developmental screening services.
The Oklahoma Early Access Autism Project will be conducting an autism screening event at the Roger’s County Health Department, 2664 N. Highway 88, Claremore, OK 74017 on April 12th, 2013. The free autism screening will be available to children ages 18 months to 7 years of age.
The purpose of the screening is to determine if developmental skills are progressing as expected. Screenings do not provide conclusive evidence of developmental delays or autism and do not result in a diagnosis; therefore a positive screening result should be followed by a thorough assessment. Families will receive information about resources in their community so they can help their child get services if needed.
In addition to this screening, the Early Access Project will continue to provide free monthly screening clinics throughout Oklahoma. For more information or to schedule an appointment for a screening, call (405) 295-5273, or visit www.EarlyAccessOK.org.
