Vision and Hearing Screenings
“Good vision and hearing is essential for proper physical development and educational progress in growing children.”
Vision Screenings are given according to Indiana state law to kindergarten, first grade, third grade, fifth grade, eighth graders, those referred and all students new to the corporation. The school nurse informs parents by a written referral if the screening test indicates need for medical follow-up. It is hoped that the parent does follow up with a medical provider and shares the results with the school nurse for medical school records. If parents need assistance in finding a medical provider or resources for financial assistance, the school nurse can be contacted.

It is hoped that the parent does follow up with a medical provider and shares the results with the speech clinician for medical school records.
