School screening service
- All children in Year 1 who attend primary school in Herefordshire will be offered a school hearing screening test. Children will only be screened if a consent form has been completed by their parent/carer.
- A hearing screen is performed with headphones. Your child will be asked to drop a toy into a box (or similar game) each time they hear a sound. If the child responds reliably to the sounds at the minimal screening sound levels, no further action is required. If they do not, they may be retested again in school at a later date or referred to the Children's Hearing Centre for further testing.
