SchoolScreener® – for vision, hearing, immunisation and BMI screening for the NCMP. The software manages entire, district-wide screening processes. For vision screening this includes the measuring of visual acuity, performing a blur test for hypermetropia and tests for vision. In regards to hearing screening, the software generates customised letters for parents, manages the referral pathway and generates management and audit reports. It uses a combination of software loaded onto a laptop and a cloud-based back-end for co-ordinating screening across multiple sites. Additional tests can be added (stereopsis and fixation disparity, for example) as can additional data fields if required.
No, there is no limit.
We use the Neitz Test (University of Washington; Professor Jay Neitz). This consists of using the printed Neitz Test card with the screener clicking on the screen according to the child’s response. The software analyses the outcome and reports back. We chose the Neitz test because no common standard for colour representation on computer screens exists. We have worked closely with Professor Neitz to deliver the testing within SchoolScreener®.
Additional interfaces exist for older children and adults. New interfaces and languages are being added regularly. If you have a particular requirements (age group, ethnicity or style) please email us and we are happy to consider adding any new ideas.
