The Head Start of LaPorte helps provides a variety of health services for enrolled children. These include from vision and hearing testing, nutritional assistance, mental health services, on-site dental exams, and a hemoglobin screening.
Your child will receive a hearing exam upon entry into the program within the first 45 days of the first day of school. Your child will be re-screened should an issue be noted by either the parent or teacher. If they fail that exam, we’ll refer him/her to a hearing specialist for a professional evaluation.
