Developmental screenings

The Child Guidance program at the Oklahoma City-County Health Department will offer developmental screenings at area libraries for children from birth to age 5.

Individual sessions will last about an hour and will involve a child development specialist, speech language pathologist and/or a behavioral health specialist, according to a news release. Parents can learn more about early development and ask questions about any area of speech, language, development and behavior.

There is a small fee for the screenings, but Medicaid is accepted and no one will be denied services, even if they can't afford to pay.

Sessions are by appointment only. Call Child Guidance at 425-4412 to schedule.

Screening dates and locations:

1 to 5 p.m. Jan. 16, Bethany Library, 3510 N Mueller Ave.

9 a.m. to noon Jan. 23, Warr Acres Library, 5901 NW 63.
