What is the Hearing & Vision Program?
This program provides FREE hearing and vision screenings for pre-school and school-aged children.
Did you know that it is a Michigan State Law that all children entering Kindergarten need their hearing and vision screened before school starts?
Because they have nothing to compare it to, young children can have hearing and vision problems and never even know it. Children entering school with undiagnosed hearing or vision problems will often have trouble learning, including reading or hearing teachers’ instructions. To avoid these problems and make sure that children entering school are ready to read, listen and learn, it is important that their hearing and vision is screened by a professional before entering kindergarten.
