• Elementary School Health Screenings

  • Vision and Hearing

    Vision and hearing screenings are done throughout the year for new students and all students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I am always happy to do a vision and/or hearing screen on any student at the request of a parent or teacher.

  • Scoliosis

    At this time, only Fifth Grade girls are screened for scoliosis in the Fall. A parent letter with more information will be sent home closer to the screening time.

  • Acanthosis Nigricans

    In addition I will do a screening for Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) at the same time as the vision/hearing screening for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade students (a visual sign on the back of the neck which could indicate an early sign of Type 2 Diabetes).
