Preschool Screening Update

The 2013 Preschool Screening Tests are almost completed!
So far we have tested 427 preschool aged children of which 21 did not pass the screening. We have one more school to test with about 40 preschoolers and so our final figures won't be in till the end of next week. Once again the two technicians from the Center for Hearing Health, Norma and Marta, have done a wonderful job with screening the children. They certainly help make this program run smoothly and efficiently.

Follow Up
The new voucher system, allowing parents to take their children to Sutter ENT for a complete audiological examination by Dr. Sue Hodell, has been implemented and seems to be successful. We should have the final numbers for how many children received a follow up sometime in May. This is such a significant addition to the program that we really hope to be able to offer it again, funds permitting.
