Ohio Department of Health vision and hearing screening training available

4/26/2024

Ohio law requires schools to provide vision and hearing screening, contract with any person or governmental entity to provide the screening, or request the guardian to obtain a screening from a provider selected by the guardian.
 
The Ohio Department of Health offers free hearing and vision screening training for school nurses and screening volunteers to help address barriers that prevent students from engaging in learning. Participants will learn about common hearing and vision disorders, understand Ohio’s vision and hearing screening requirements, and receive hands-on training with screening equipment. 
 
For more information, see the regional training website.
