Vision and Hearing Screenings
A child’s ability to see and hear affects their performance in the classroom. Approximately ten years ago, the Troup County School System stopped vision and hearing screenings for students. In 2018, the Lions Club and local volunteers gave vision and hearing screenings to all second graders in Troup County. The result was that 8% of second graders failed either their vision or hearing test, making it extremely difficult for them to read on grade level.
