PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. offers free developmental screenings to families who are exploring what their child's developmental needs may be.

A developmental screening is a brief assessment of your child’s overall development. Screenings will determine whether your child is demonstrating age-appropriate skills or may be in need of a full evaluation. Based on your concerns, you may elect to have your child participate in a global developmental screening or a discipline-specific screening (i.e. speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social work/counseling services). 

Individual Screenings

Individual families that are interested in receiving a developmental screening for their child can complete our sign-up form; once received, you will be contacted by our Intake Coordinator to discuss scheduling options.  

Screenings are complimentary and are offered virtually or in-person at our clinic. Please be aware that due to COVID-19 precautions, in-person clinic screening times are currently limited and we will do our best to schedule your screening as soon as possible.

If you are unsure which type of screening would be most beneficial for your child, please contact the clinic by calling 773-332-9439 or emailing

School Screening Events

PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. partners with local schools and daycares to provide a convenient option for children to receive a developmental screening at school.  

School screenings occur during a dedicated week when PlayWorks therapists are on-site to screen children whose parents have opted in. PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. provides all necessary information to distribute to students and families.  Results forms are emailed directly to the family within two business days of the event.
