BEDHD offers hearing and vision screening free of charge for infants through school-aged children.

BEDHD provides hearing and vision screening to students during the school year at area schools, preschools, and Head Starts. BEDHD also has monthly clinics at the health department. Please call us to make an appointment.

Students are screened for vision before they enter kindergarten and when they are in 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th grades. Students are screened for hearing between the ages of 3 to 5 years old, in kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grades. 

The parents of students who do not pass the screening are notified and recommendations are made to follow up with an eye/ear professional or a family doctor.
