About the Hearing and Vision Screening Program

Image result for vision screening

The Hearing and Vision Screening Program supports the screening of children by Public Health - Muskegon County at least once between the ages of 3 and 5 years and every other year between the ages of 5 and 10 years. Public Health - Muskegon County visits all Muskegon County schools to provide services throughout the year.

Many children are unaware that they hear differently or see differently than their peers.  Early identification of hearing and vision problems can alleviate speech/language delays, social/emotional delays, academic delays and psychological delays.

The GOALS of the hearing and vision screening screening programs are to:

  • Identify hearing and vision loss in children as early as possible;

  • Reduce and remediate hearing and vision loss by providing referral services to medical care for children at-risk;

  • Improve children's educational and social experiences; and,

  • Help parents and school personnel to identify and rectify any child's special needs.
