Child Find

Lee County School District provides monthly screenings to identify children, ages 3-21, who may have developmental delays.  Parents who suspect a delay in their child's speech, vision, hearing, or learning capabilities are asked to contact the school district to schedule an appointment.

The clinic is open and free to all children who reside in Lee County and are accompanied by their parent/guardian.

Monthly screenings will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Bishopville Primary Annex.  For an appointment or for more information, please call Tess Fullard at 484-5337, ext.4009.

See schedule below for specific screening dates at Bishopville Primary Annex.
