Back to School Health Screening

Every autumn, newly enrolled children at Tahaddi Education Center are provided with a “school health” screening at the Tahaddi Health Center. We screen the children’s vision, growth against standardized growth charts, and overall physical health, as well review their vaccination charts and encourage parents to make sure their children are fully caught up.

This “Back to School” screening gives our medical team a chance to meet with the parents, talk with them about how their child is developing, and discuss different ways to stimulate positive growth. If the screening indicates any significant medical issues, from audio or visual impairment to heart murmurs, our health center team is able to quickly refer them to specialists. This year we are on track to screen over 100 children!
