Mobile Hearing Screenings
The Clinic operates a mobile screening van that is the only one of its kind in the East Bay. This vehicle makes it possible to provide hearing and speech/language screenings by going to schools, heath fairs and senior centers throughout the East Bay. At present, the Center conducts some 900 preschool and grade-school hearing screenings annually. Since the mobile screening van allows the screenings to be conducted quickly, more children can be screened each year.
Screenings are provided to the community at low cost by graduate students, who are in clinical training at the University and work under the supervision of licensed and certified professionals.
To find out more about the availability of the mobile unit and to inquire about scheduling screenings, please contact 510.885.3241.
The mobile screening van has been made possible by the generous support of the Eden Township Health District, The TJ Long Foundation, and Wells Fargo Bank.
