Hearing Screening

Giles County Public Schools provide hearing screenings to students enrolled in grades
3rd, 7th, and 10th. Pre-K and K Screenings are done prior to entrance by primary care providers during student's physicals.

School-age hearing screenings are an integral tool in identifying children with hearing loss who were not identified at birth, lost to follow-up, or who developed hearing loss later. Without mandated routine hearing screenings in schools, students with unilateral, less severe or late onset hearing loss may not be identified or will be misdiagnosed and managed.www.asha.org

If your child does not pass his/her hearing screening a referral letter will be sent to the address provided upon enrollment. If you receive a referral letter please schedule a follow up appointment with your child's Primary Care Provider.

If your child is not in one of the grades listed above and you have concerns and would like them screened please reach out to me at 540-921-1421 ext 19, and I will be happy to screen them for you.
