By having MEDARVA Vision & Hearing Program come to your school, you are making an important first step to being an advocate for healthy vision and hearing.
The MEDARVA Vision & Hearing Program travels to schools and child care facilities in Richmond and the surrounding counties providing FREE vision & hearing screenings. Children ages 3 all the way up to 12th grade are welcome to participate.
The MEDARVA Vision & Hearing Program is dedicated to highlighting the importance of early screenings to detect vision and hearing concerns, so every child has the chance to reach their full potential. Our free mobile screenings are quick, non-invasive and always child friendly.
The goal of the vision screening is to identify whether a child has a vision impairment, which can be significant enough to effect learning. Sometimes vision problems can cause many of the same symptoms as ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, and other mislabels. The goal of the hearing screening is to identify whether a child has a hearing impairment, which may interfere with speech and language development, communication, social development, health, or school performance.
Early detection of vision and hearing problems increases a child’s opportunity for academic, social, and athletic success! Early treatment of vision and hearing problems leads to better outcomes for the child.
Call or email us today to get more information about our program or to schedule a screening at your school.
We look forward to hearing from you!
