As school comes to a close end, Fairfield Memorial Hospital Therapy Department is gearing up for Pediatric Summer Therapy Screening to prevent the “Summer Slide”.


The multi-disciplinary screening will include Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapies and will assess the child’s speech, fine motor, handwriting skills and gross motor play. The screening will assist in determining the need for summer therapy to help in preventing the “Summer Slide”.

May 16th from 11am-1pm
