Undiagnosed hearing and vision problems may interfere with development. Early detection and treatment of hearing and vision problems can help children succeed in school.

Hearing and vision screening is required by the Michigan Public Health Code. Parents will be asked for proof of screening before their children enter kindergarten or head start. Once a child is in school, the Washtenaw County Health Department continues free in-school screenings on a regular basis.
