HEARING SCREENING

Grant Wood Area Education Agency (GWAEA) screens all students in Alternative Kindergarten (AK), kindergarten, and grades 1,2, and 5. Students in the Early Learning Program with IEP’s will be screened. Students in grades 3,4, Middle School and High School, who are new to the school, that don’t have a documented normal hearing test, and some students with a history of known hearing loss will also be tested. Follow up testing may occur periodically if previous hearing test results were not within normal limits. Parent/guardians not wishing their child’s hearing tested should notify the health office in writing at the beginning of the year. Parents/guardians with concerns about their child’s hearing should contact the school nurse.
