Park Cities Speech, Language & Learning Center has provided comprehensive screening services to private schools and preschools for over three decades. A team of licensed screeners conduct hearing, vision, speech/language , scoliosis and diabetes screening in the school setting. We conduct the screenings in a professional and time efficient manner and provide written feedback to both the school and parents in a form that is suitable for reporting to the State.
This screening assesses hearing sensitivity through conventional audiometric pure tone screening (listening to tones at certain loudness levels through earphones). Our hearing screeners hold degrees in speech/language pathology and are directed by a doctoral level audiologist who is available to provide additional feedback to parents when necessary.
Vision screening involves “reading” alphabet letters or figures (for pre-readers) from a Snellen eye chart.
Because communication disorders can interfere with educational progress and social emotional development, it is important for speech-language screenings to be offered in every educational setting. However, this is not a required screening. As with hearing and vision screenings, you will receive a written summary of our findings.
Spinal Screening are only required for 5th and 8th graders or 6th and 9th graders. Our spinal screeners are specially trained by the state to conduct this screening.
This is a relatively new screening requirement in the State of Texas designed to identify early signs of diabetes. Our center offers this screening as part of our comprehensive screening package.
