Vision and Hearing

Head set and eye test chart pictureVision and Hearing screenings are performed in public and private schools for grades Pre-k through 12th grade. Sue Leon is certified by the Department of Public Health and has been working with the schools in our area for many years.

Hearing and vision screenings are conducted once a year for all children in Pre-school, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd , 3rd, and 8th grades, any child with an IEP, any new students, any teacher referrals, any re-screening needed, and inspection of any eye glasses when applicable. Cost will be a flat rate $7.00 per child in Fulton, Hancock, McDonough, and Schuyler Counties.

Children receive an initial screening, and then within 10 - 14 days is re-screened. If the child fails a second time, a referral is sent home to the parents. The referral is to be brought to the doctor to be completed and returned and forwarded to the school.  The school will then provide the needed services, such as the child may need to sit in the front of the classroom or the teacher may need to use a microphone for a hearing impaired student.
