Introduction to Hearing & Vision Screenings A FREE Webinar Series


Introduction to Hearing and Vision Screenings Promo

January 19, 1-2 p.m. & January 27, 11 a.m.-12 p.m.

Nurses, teachers, audiologists, and optometrists are on the front line when identifying learners who are suspected of having a hearing or vision loss. In addition, school psychologists and school administrators are often charged with identifying which assessments a learner may need and how to accurately document the findings. Families and teachers must then take this information and determine what it means for the learner at home, at school, and in the community.
