The Hearing and Vision program provides hearing and vision screenings for preschool and school age children. All Monroe County School Districts work in partnership with Monroe County Health Department to provide hearing and vision screening throughout a child’s school years. Children are screened in school according to the following schedule:

                        Hearing: Preschool and grades K, 2 and 4

                        Vision: Preschool and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

In addition to school screenings, FREE hearing and vision screenings are available at the Monroe County Health Department. Call (734) 240-7856 for an appointment or for any questions about hearing and vision screenings.
