Under federal and state special education regulations, the Hingham Public Schools (HPS) has a responsibility to locate, identify, refer, evaluation and if eligible, provide a free, appropriate, public education to students with disabilities who reside in the town of Hingham. For this purpose, we offer preschool screenings twice per year, in November and February.
Dates will be published here as well as advertised throughout Hingham and HPS social media accounts. The first screening of the 2021-2022 school year will be held Wednesday, November 10, 2021. Each screening takes approximately 30 minutes.
The teachers/therapists will screen children for cognitive, speech and language, fine motor, and gross motor skills. If you have questions, or concerns that your child may have a disability, please call Darcy Greene at 781-741-1570 - prompt 4; then prompt 1, to schedule an appointment for Wednesday, 11/10/21.
