 I finally got a letter in the mail for an evaluation for ds but i notice it says its not an evaluation its a pre-screen. Does anyone know what that mean? or has this happen to you? What should i expect?

Thanks in advance

I tried to bump this, because I have no ideas, so I either bumped it 3 times or not at all.  lol

I am not 100% sure, but a Pre screening might be maybe something they do prior of a evaluation? maybe like a pre evaluation? Thats my guess at least. It might be something to determine if the evaluation is recommended or not. Hope this helps a little lol

The screening for EI was just a bunch of questions for us, she didn't really engage our son at all. It took a couple days before they agreed he had enough signs that he needed an actual evaluation

Our ped did the pre-screen at his office. Then he put in an order for an autism diagnoses.:) Hope this helped

Maybe not a true evaluatin with testing but just a meeting to ask questions?

Pre-screening is probably just a precursor to the actual evaluation.  Good luck!

The prescreen is to see if an evaluation is even necessary. They should have you feel out papers and ask you questions and then watch your son in the process.
