2012 Preschool Hearing Screening Starts in Davis

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.

A grant of $4650.00 from First 5 Yolo along with a donation of $2,500.00 from the Woodland Sunrise Rotary Foundation also allowed Hear! Here to increase the number of schools scheduled for testing in Woodland, as well as to include Knights Landing preschool for the first time. In addition all the established preschools in Winters and Esparto are scheduled for testing. The hearing screenings will take place between now and May 17th.

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.
