B4 School Checks
The B4 School Check aims to identify and address any health, behavioural, social, or developmental concerns which could affect a child’s ability to get the most benefit from school, such as a hearing problem or communication difficulty.
It is the 12th core contact of the Well Child Tamariki Ora Schedule of services.
For more information on the delivery of the B4 School Check in your area, contact your DHB’s key contact – a list of B4 School Check key contacts can be found in the Your health section.
This service is every six weeks via appointment only through the DHB Nurse.
