School Screenings

on September 20th, 2007 | Filed under Optoblog

I was listening to OD Conversations’ OD Radio podcast about school screenings. They don’t allow comments on their site, so I’ll comment on my blog.

They were talking about how they work with the school nurses and help out with screenings. They also implemented some additional tests to help catch more subtle problems. Wow, I’m jealous.

I contacted the local district nurses (they don’t have any in the school full-time, just traveling ones), and they gave me the brush off. They said they run their programs according to state guidelines and that they don’t need any additional help.

Now that my son is in school, this year I’m going to try to infiltrate the program from the inside by volunteering as a parent in the PTA to help with screenings.
