Hearing and Vision Screening Program

As required by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), District Health Department No. 4 offers FREE hearing and vision screening services to children ages 3-18 throughout the four county area. Hearing and vision screens are offered at local schools during the school year, and also at the Health Department by appointment. The routine screens in area schools are based on the MDHHS guidelines shown below.
The goal of the hearing and vision screening programs is to identify children with potential hearing and/or vision concerns and assist them in finding care. Early detection, and treatment if necessary, can greatly enhance a child’s success in school. If you would like to make an appointment for your child for this FREE service you may call, 1(800)221-0294.
