Preschool Screening Team

The La Salle/Putnam County Preschool Team, located in the L.E.A.S.E. Office, assists local education agencies and districts by conducting Child Find activities. During a screening, various skills are briefly assessed. These include fine motor, readiness/cognition, gross motor, speech/language, hearing and vision. Preschool Team Members are:

Michelle Pangrcic, Early Childhood Teacher and Diagnostician
Molly Kasperski, Speech/Language Pathologist
LuAnn Winterrowd, Hearing and Vision Technician
Julie O'Brien Smith, Speech/Language Pathologist and Coordinator (As Needed)
Jean Gula, Secretary

While a large percentage of children pass the initial screening, some may have difficulty.  If this is the case, the child may be referred for further testing.
