Free Hearing and Vision Screenings Available for Children at Genesee Health Department

The Genesee County Health Department is facilitating no-cost hearing and vision screenings for children who will be entering kindergarten in the upcoming academic year. This initiative aligns with Michigan state regulations mandating that all incoming kindergarteners undergo documented hearing and vision assessments before the commencement of the school year.

To ensure accessibility, these screenings are being offered at various school district sites and the Health Department’s Burton branch location. While some screening sessions require prior appointments, the county emphasizes that interested parents should reach out directly to the Health Department’s Hearing and Vision Program for specific details.

A comprehensive schedule outlining the dates, times, and locations of upcoming screening clinics can be accessed via the program’s dedicated webpage. Parents are encouraged to stay informed by visiting this page or by contacting the Hearing and Vision Screening Program directly at 810-257-3193 or via email at gchd-hearingvision@geneseecountymi.gov. This communication channel provides essential information regarding the availability of screenings and ensures that parents can make timely arrangements for their child’s participation.

By offering these screenings at no cost and in various accessible locations, the Genesee County Health Department aims to support the health and educational readiness of local children entering kindergarten. This proactive approach not only meets state requirements but also underscores the department’s commitment to promoting the well-being and academic success of young learners in the community.
