The Ingham County Health Department's Vision and Hearing Screening Program is successful due to the partnership and collaboration with area preschools and schools. Through this relationship, we screened over 30,000 children last year, resulting in the identification of almost 2,000 children who were referred for further evaluation and treatment.
While the Health Department not required to formally obtain permission to screen children (per the Michigan Public Health Code); we feel it is important to inform parents about the services and supports that are happening in their child's school. Please utilize the documents provided below to share information about upcoming screenings with parents, so that you can customize the information based on your dates/times:
