Screening Partnership Between Alberta Health Services and High Prairie School Division
Posted on 09/09/2020

The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt by many of us and our children are no exception. Alberta Health Services has traditionally been assessing children for speech language issues. These services have been limited because of COVID. We are pleased to inform you that during the month of September, Alberta Health Services and High Prairie School Division are partnering in an effort to identify children aged 2 years-8 months to 4 years-8 months who may require early intervention services.

The following dates are the screening windows for each community. If your child falls between the ages of 2.8 to 4.8 years and you would like them screened for potential speech and language services, please contact the school to arrange an appointment. The screening dates are as follows:
 
Dates:

  • Falher (780) 837-2114 - Sept. 14, 2020
  • High Prairie Elementary School (780) 523-4531 - Sept 16, 2020
  • Joussard School (780) 776-3753 - Sept. 18, 2020
  • Kinuso School (780) 775-3694 - Sept. 18, 2020
  • C.J. Schurter School (780) 849-4344 - Sept. 15. 2020

If required, arrangements for further assessment will be made after the screening. Based on the assessment results, programming will be discussed with you about ways you can support your child. Attached is a description of the screening process and a consent you can bring to the screening.

* This assessment process does not guarantee services by AHS or HPSD.
