Hearing/Vision screenings are performed within 120 days of school start. If you receive a referral for further evaluation for a hearing or vision problem please set up an appointment with a hearing or vision specialist so that corrections can be made early in the school year. Acanthosis Nigricans a screening for possible Type 2 diabetes is done at the same time. This is a marker found on the nape of the neck that signals high insulin levels in the body. You will also be sent a referral if this is found in your child. Please contact your physician for an evaluation.
If your child receives clothes from the clinic due to a health problem please remember to launder and return them to the clinic. If they received clothes due to financial need, please keep.
