Release Date: 
8/28/2012

The InterMountain Education Service District (IMESD) is providing free hearing screenings to public elementary school students through November.

Hearing screenings are conducted annually by the IMESD’s Audiology Department for public school students in Umatilla, Morrow and Union counties, and is cooperatively sponsored by local school districts. Students to be screened include nearly 4,000 kindergarten, first and third grade students, new students to a county, and parent/teacher/principal referrals of students in other grades. Children who fail the initial screening will be re-screened within a three-week period.

Screenings began last week and will continue through November.

Parents who do not want their child’s hearing to be screened should notify their child’s school as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding the hearing screening program, please contact your local school principal or the IMESD Audiology Department at 541-966-3140.
