A NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
Optimal hearing and vision are important to a child's long term development, school achievements and health outcomes
Working together for our children
School Screening Association was created in 2004 to provide a much needed service to our children. Audiology was removed from our Health Care Coverage, which has left us with a generation of children that have not had their hearing screened unless they have been referred to an E.N.T., or visited an Audiologist at their own expense.
We are a Not for Profit Organization committed to Hearing Heathcare Awareness through hearing screening clinics at the schools.
Although an annual comprehensive eye examination for children up to the age of 19 is covered by the Ministry of Health (OHIP), we also offer vision screening as part of our school clinics at no cost. Our statistics show that 47% of the children we screen are referred to an optometrist with potential vision concerns.
