Vision and Screening Notification

VISION AND HEARING SCREENING NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT

TITLE 77 ADMINISTRATIVE CODE

SECTION 685.110 and 675.110

Section 685.110(d) requires screening programs to inform parents/guardians PRIOR TO SCREENING and IN WRITING that vision screening will be conducted and that screening is not a substitute for a full vision assessment. The following language must be included in the notice:

“Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision examination by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo the vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an eye examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.”

This notice is NOT a “consent” to screen and it must clearly inform parents that unless there is a vision examination report from a doctor in the child’s file, the screening (at mandated age and grade levels) will be done.

Notification can be done through a school web-site, school handbook, a newsletter, the school calendar, a separate notice, etc.

Section 675.110 requires screening programs to inform parents/guardians PRIOR TO SCREENING and IN WRITING that vision screening will be conducted and that screening is not a substitute for a full vision assessment. The following language must be included in the notice

Hearing screening services shall be provided annually for all school age children who are in grades K (kindergarten), 1, 2, and 3; are in any special education class; have been referred by a teacher; or are transfer students. These screening services shall be provided in all public, private, and parochial schools. Hearing screening is recommended in grades 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12.

This notice is NOT a “consent” to screen and it must clearly inform parents that unless there is a hearing examination report from a doctor in the child’s file, the screening (at mandated age and grade levels) will be done.
