Thanks in part to a $1,000.00 donation from the Davis International Soroptimists Hear! Here!'s hearing screenings of 4 and 5 year olds began in Davis today. The Center for Hearing Health mobile van stopped at 3 different Davis preschools this morning testing the children for evidence of any hearing impairment. These schools represent part of the expansion of the Preschool Testing Program in 2012.
Good hearing is critical in the process of children learning to speak and to read. The hearing screenings that the Center of Hearing Health provide allow the teachers and parents of children identified with a hearing loss to take steps to ensure that the children receive the support they need to be successful in school and in the world.
