CVSD offers developmental screenings
Each year, the Central Valley School District Special Services Department conducts a "Child Find" search to identify preschool children with developmental delays.

Children identified by the search may be screened in the areas of speech, language and cognitive and physical development. Free screening clinics are held monthly throughout the school year.
