All children in Western Australia are offered a health assessment during their first year of Primary School.
This usually occurs in Kindergarten and is provided by the local Community Health Nurse. The program is an excellent opportunity to look at the health and development of each child at the beginning of school life.
This year there has been a policy change which now supports routine hearing assessment returning to our service. For more information about the screening, please click here. If you have any concerns about the assessment, please contact me on 0404894312 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
