DeQueen Mena Co-op providing screenings for preschoolers

Parents, you know watching your child grow is one of the joys of parenthood. But sometimes you may notice that your child can’t do the same things that other children his or her age do. Some children need help walking, talking, seeing, hearing or learning.
The Early Childhood staff from the DeQueen-Mena Educational Cooperative is available to provide vision, hearing, developmental and speech/language screenings for preschoolers between the ages of three and five.
Screenings may be scheduled for children residing in the Mt Ida or Ouachita River school district by contacting Penny Fiorello at 870-784-1907 for an appointment.
Screenings may be scheduled for children residing in the Caddo Hills school district by contacting Penny Fiorello at 870-784-1907.
The DeQueen-Mena Educational Cooperative staff stresses the importance of the early identification of vision, hearing and developmental problems and encourages parents who are concerned about their child to participate in the FREE screenings. Please contact the DeQueen-Mena Educational Cooperative, P.O. Box 110, Gillham, AR 71841, 479-385-4319 or your local school district for more information.
