In-School Vision and Hearing Screenings

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health vision and hearing technicians and school nurses conduct mandated vision and hearing screenings during the school year in public schools for children in preschool, kindergarten, first and eighth grade, and for students new to Anne Arundel County schools. Special education students receiving speech therapy may also be recommended for screening. Department vision and hearing technicians also administer vision and hearing screenings at private schools, nurseries and day care programs to ensure that the appropriate children are screened.

Children who wear glasses should bring them to school on the day of the screening.

Children are screened in order to detect vision or hearing problems that may impair a child's ability to perform successfully in school. If a potential deficiency is detected, a letter is sent to the parents informing them of the results. The parents are advised to contact the child's doctor for further testing and advice.
