Speech, Hearing and Vision Screenings at Aspen Academy 

  • Health and Wellness
Jessie Skipwith

Feedback from screenings can facilitate understanding possible challenges that a student is experiencing.  While screening does not provide a diagnosis, it can provide a focus for more in-depth evaluation that can guide needed intervention and other supports.  Screening provides families tools to dig a bit deeper as they work with the school to support their child’s success.  Having a common language based on feedback from a screening enhances communication between home and school, fosters effective collaboration and improves understanding of a child’s needs.

Aspen Academy is committed to supporting a families' role in ensuring positive, individualized developmental outcomes for all children within this community. We are proud to offer these screening opportunities each year.   Knowledge is power for our teachers, families and children. Thank you.
