State Mandated Screenings
During the 2019-2020 school year, our clinical staff performed over 1,800 hearing screenings and over 2,000 vision screenings for students in the New Orleans area.
How does it work?
Our clinical support team coordinates with the school administration to schedule an on-site hearing and vision screenings per state-mandated requirements. Every participant must fill out a consent form that must be signed by a parent or guardian 18 years or older. You can find all the required consent forms on our consent form page.
All screenings are free for students regardless of their insurance status. If your child fails a hearing or vision screening, a team member will provide a prescription for eyeglasses or a referral to a local audiologist.

Partnership with KREWE
Thanks to our partnership with the KREWE Foundation, every child who requires prescription glasses is able to receive a brand new pair absolutely free! Each student chooses from numerous pairs of glasses that are custom fit to their face and prescription needs.
This service is provided by Louisiana Academic Health as part of our comprehensive care program. Insurance information is collected and processed if available. Regardless of insurance status, no student will receive a bill for services rendered.
