HSHS St. Anthony's Hospital holding free developmental screening

EFFINGHAM - HSHS St. Anthony's Hospital officials say they will hold a free developmental screening for children on May 16.

Officials say the screenings will be offered to children ages 0 through 18 years old, and that parents will be able to speak with an occupational therapist during the 20-30 minute screening.  The screening will test your child's fine and gross motor skills, self-help skills, visual perceptual and motor skills, sensory system, and speech and language skills.

A physician's order will not be required for the screening, and patients will not have to register with the hospital.  However, screenings are only being held by appointment, between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  In order to schedule an appointment, call (217) 347-1243.
