The purpose of hearing and vision screening is to identify children who may have a visual or a hearing impairment. Impairment in either of these areas may prevent a child from obtaining full benefit from their educational opportunities. Vision and hearing problems often go unnoticed because the defects are difficult to notice. Without specific screening tests a problem may not be found until your child develops significant educational or medical problems. Hearing and Vision screening enables us to detect unrecognized conditions as early as possible in order to obtain prompt treatment and resolution to any problems.
