Audiological Evaluation


Audiological evaluations are available through the MISD for any student suspected of having an educationally significant permanent or temporary hearing loss.  Parents and/or caregivers are an integral part of the assessment.  Audiological services include:

  • Diagnosis of hearing impairment.

  • Referral to the medical community, as needed.

  • Hearing aid recommendation. 


Referrals are processed and appointments scheduled on an ongoing basis. 

Referral Process:

  1. Children under the age of three years may be referred directly to the Assessment Center by the parent prior to September 1st.  After September 1st, contact the LEA for children over age 3.
  2. Children who are 3 years or older must be referred by the local Director of Special Education using the Form 2 process.  This may also include those students up to age 26 who have not yet graduated from a high school program or have not been granted a certificate of completion.
  3. A Form 2 Referral, signed by the Director of Special Education and the parent, is forwarded to the MISD Assessment Center.
