Hearing Screening

County Public Schools provide hearing screenings to students enrolled in grades
K, 3rd, 7th, and 10th.

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
