Dd had her reception health screening last week and the results arrived today. She has failed both the sight and hearing tests. I'm not massively suprised by the sight thing as she comes from a long line of very short sighted folk, but a bit concerned about the hearing, I thought repeating myself was normal!
Does anyone have any experience of what will happen next?
DS failed his heating test at 3.5, was referred to a consultant by GP and was diagnosed with glue ear and 60% hearing loss in both ears. Had grommets at just turned 5 (Long process with wait for consultant and 6 months in between hearing tests) is now 7 and fine. Has 90% hearing in both ears.
Is long sighted, has had glasses since 4 and them seem to be improving, I just take him to spec savers for eyes.
My dd failed the sight test despite already wearing glasses , we very quickly had a follow up letter from the hospital, and whilst she was under the hospital she was not allowed to be seen by the local optician, so I would wait and see what you are told to do.
She's not displayed any indication that she can't see clearly Eyespy, and although I am very short sighted myself I didn't notice a problem or start wearing specs until I was 10 so hadn't really been on the lookout just yet.
My ds failed his school hearing test ,he was followed up with another hearing test and then an audiologist , it panned out he was moderately deaf in both ears ( about 50/60%) . He had no speech deficits ,was a high achiever and had taught himself to lip read . He wore ITC aids until he was 12 ,then stopped wearing them ( against my better judgement) . Being deaf has never affected him from an educational POV .
