Hearing and vision screenings are offered at no cost to Genesee County students, ages three through 17, throughout the year by trained Health Department technicians. Both hearing and vision screenings are offered to pre-school children, ages three and up, at daycares/preschools throughout Genesee County. During the spring and summer, technicians provide hearing and vision screenings to children preparing to enter kindergarten in the fall. These screenings are done in each school district in the County. During the school year, students are provided vision screenings in grades 1, 3, and 5 at each school. Students may also be screened during the seventh grade and during the ninth grade in preparation for driver’s education. Vision screenings for 7th and 9th grade students may be offered in the school and can also be completed during one of the Health Department’s clinics located at the Health Department’s Burton Branch. Hearing screenings are provided in grades kindergarten, 2 and 4 at each school.  Students may be referred for a hearing or vision screening at other times by teachers or parents.

Hearing and vision screenings for all children, ages 3 through 17, are offered once a month at a clinic at the Genesee County Health Department’s Burton Branch location at G-3373 South Saginaw Street, Burton. Although it is a walk-in clinic, parents are encouraged to call 810-257-3193 for information and appointments. Upcoming hearing and vision screening clinic dates are:
