IMESD Offers Free Hearing Screenings to Students this Fall

Release Date: 
8/25/2016

Again this year, the IMESD will provide free hearing screenings to public elementary school students at area schools this fall.

Hearing screenings are conducted annually by the IMESD’s Audiology Department for public school students in Morrow, Umatilla and Union counties. The program is cooperatively sponsored by our 18 component school districts.

Students to be screened include 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 begin September 1 and continue through November 12.

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 questions about the hearing screening program, please contact your child’s school.
