Your Child's Hearing and Vision

Part of your child's success in school depends on good hearing and vision.

Periodic hearing and vision screenings during the pre-school and school age years are important in identifying a hearing or eye problem early.

Hearing & Vision Screenings for children ages 3-18 years are offered in schools, preschools, nurseries, day care centers and Head Start.

Free hearing and vision screenings are available by appointment the 3rd Friday of each month.

  • To schedule an appointment call 734-727-7136

If a child is suspected of having a hearing or vision problem, the parent or guardian will be notified and recommended to see a physician of their choosing.

  • History of frequent ear infections or drainage from ears

Children may have a vision problem if:

  • Child squints or tilts head to see
  • Has an eye that crosses or wanders when child is ill or tired
