Hearing & Vision Screenings – Struggling to Catch Up?

The pandemic has upended the hearing and screening schedules for many schools across the country. Are you behind in your screenings? If so, you’re not alone. Unexpected transitions to remote learning may have interrupted screening schedules for individual students, as well as whole grade levels.

Join us to learn tips and tricks that can help you speed up your process for vision and hearing screening. During this presentation you will learn:

  • How to identify & prioritize students who may be at high risk for vision issues
  • The baseline of screening priorities that help you address the needs of children who need early intervention to prevent hearing or vision loss
  • Which scientifically backed evidence-based tools are available to support both hearing and vision screeners
