The School Health Service program improves student health and learning outcomes.
Mobile Audiology Screenings
THE GREELEY-EVANS SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS TAKEN AN INNOVATIVE STEP TO SERVE ITS STUDENTS WITH THEIR NEW MOBILE AUDIOLOGY TESTING TRUCK (MATT).
We are now able to provide onsite audiology screenings for thousands of students. The MATT provides a comfortable waiting area and soundproof booth with new equipment that produces accurate tests. For one student whose hearing ->
issues were continually misdiagnosed as allergies, test results from screenings received in the MATT persuaded her parents to seek a second opinion, which resulted in receiving the hearing aids she needed to overcome barriers to social interaction and academic success. Thanks to the SHS Program, the MATT will be traveling from school to school to help students with similar ->
needs for years to come.
