    Screeing Information


    Acanthosis Nigricans Screening pupils in grades 1, 3, 5, and 7.
    Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) is a physical skin finding that may be a marker for high blood insulin levels (hyperinsulinemia), suggesting insulin resistance, that is associated with obesity. The goal of this screening is to identify children with AN and intervene to reduce their risk of developing diabetes.

    Hearing Screening pupils in grades K, 1, 3, 5, and 7.
    The results of the pure-tone audiometric Sweep-Check Screen are recorded for both the right and left ears. The Sweep-Check Screen is performed at an intensity less than or equal to 25 dB at the following frequencies: 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hertz. The goal is to identify children hearing problems early and refer them to appropriate remedial services.

    Vision Screenings pupils in grades K, 1, 3, 5, and 7.
    For vision screening a distance acuity for the right and left eyes is recorded. At YMLA we use a Telebinocular for screenings (the same equipment used by TxDPS). This is a stereoscopic instrument used for screening various eye defects and measuring visual acuity. The goal is to identify children with vision problems early and refer them appropriate remedial services.

    Spinal Screening pupils in grades 6 and 9.
    The goal is to identify children with scoliosis early and refer them to appropriate remedial services.
