OUR HEARING & VISION CLINICS
Studies show that even a mild hearing loss or vision impairment can have a devastating impact on a child's ability to learn, as well as on their psycho social development and their sense of connectedness to their community. Our Screening Clinics are designed to help early detections of possible issues. We do not perform any diagnostic testing therefore no diagnosis are made. We simply refer a child who does not pass the screening to a family doctor or optometrist.
