Screenings performed by the school nurse as required by the State of Connecticut are:
- Kindergarten: vision and hearing
- 1st grade: vision and hearing
If your child does not pass the screening, they are rechecked before a referral letter for further evaluation is sent home. Please return the referral letter to the clinic after your child is evaluated.
At any time during the school year you have a concern about your child’s hearing or vision, call the clinic and I would be happy to perform a screening exam.
