    I'm job hunting, and looking for companies that contract with school districts to do vision and hearing testing. I'm qualified to do vision and hearing screening, and work for them.

    I've searched the internet every way I can think of, but can't find any of these companies. I'm a little frustrated.

    I've looked at school district sites, looked under hearing, vision, screening, schools, and every combination of those. Even went to the state of California site, and the dept of education. No help.

    SIGH!!!

    Thanks for any advice you can offer...

    Beth.

    Any suggestions how else to search?

    I work for a school district in Ohio.

    The only kiddos that get some screen is Kindergadeners. The school nurse do the vision and the hearing is done by our SLP.

    We do have a vision specialist but she works for many school districts.

    We never hire out to companies due to the fact that we need to run FBI finger prints/background checks with anyone who has access to our student.


    Why don't you call the central office for several districts to find out how they are getting that need filled.

    Good luck!

    thank you! The links weren't too much help, but I appreciate your efforts!

    somewhere I have a list that the state DOE sent out, of companies sanctioned by the state of CA to do this, but that list is in the vast black hole of the problem that I've moved twice in the past 7 months and can't find much of anything.

    I'll keep trying...

    Hugs!
