Free Vision Screening for schools


Tablet Academy are proud to announce we are supporting the new national campaign http://www.screeningforschools.co.uk 

The programme entitles every school in the UK to a free vision screening kit which enables schools to check a child’s vision in 3 minutes. The online software then generates a letter home to parents informing them of any potential issues with their child’s sight.

 

Why support this programme?

There is evidence that 15% of children up to the age of 16 have an undiagnosed vision problem. These students can present with symptoms similar to specific learning difficulties, can be seen as hyperactive, or have a reduced attention span.

 

By simply moving a child to the front of the class, or having corrective vision aids like glasses, a child can achieve better results and avoid discomfort.

 

Tablet Academy are seeking support to raise awareness of this programme and would be grateful if you could share this with any schools you know. Please encourage them to visit http://www.screeningforschools.co.uk and register for their free screening kit.
