---- — HAMPSTEAD — The Hampstead School District is sponsoring a Child Find Check to screen children between the ages of birth and 6 for possible educational disabilities.

If you suspect that your child may have difficulty with speech, hearing, vision, coordination, development or a learning disability that may require special help, the Child Find Check will help answer your questions.

The screening will be done by trained professionals.

All results will be kept confidential and will only be released to other professionals, the school system or physician with parental consent.

The Child Find Check is free to Hampstead residents and will be held on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hampstead Central School.

A parent or legal guardian must accompany the child. Appointments are required.

To schedule an appointment or for additional information, call Theresa Altsher in the Hampstead Central School main office at 329-6326, Ext. 102, the week of Jan. 21 between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
