Children are always using their eyes and ears in the classroom and during play. If a child can’t hear or see well, it can make learning difficult.
Vision and hearing problems can be hard to notice for parents, teachers and kids. That’s why it’s important to have your child tested before a problem starts or gets worse. Doctors can treat most conditions if they catch them early.
If you’re worried about your child’s vision or hearing at any time, take your child to get checked soon.
Parkland’s primary care clinics and school-based Youth & Family Centers offer hearing and vision checks. You can also call your Parkland primacy care provider. Find a Parkland clinic near you by going to www.parklandhospital.com/locations or schedule an appointment by calling 214.266.4000.
