What Your Peers Are Saying

Whitney Pile, Health & Nutrition Specialist at Murray Head Start (Kentucky)

Murray Head Start currently serves over 600 families each year across 29 locations. 

“Federal regulations are a big deal to me.  When Head Start locations were required to start screening every child with an evidence-based screener, I knew the device we already had would not adequately meet mandated screening deadlines given how many locations and staff members needed to use it.  I needed a device with higher efficiency and mobility.  I learned about GoCheck Kids on our listserv.

We’ve been thrilled with GoCheck’s speed, instant results, ease of use, and mobility.  Since it’s at our fingertips we can serve more kids.  We work smarter because of GoCheck’s efficiency, and we no longer have to keep a calendar for sharing one device.”

Linda Margaretic,  Health Services Manager at Sierra Cascade Family Opportunities (California)

Sierra serves approximately 250 families across 4 counties.   

“I was pleased to learn about GoCheck Kids and have been using this screening application very successfully for the past year. Before deciding to use GoCheck Kids I contacted a local pediatric ophthalmologist who likes the application very much and encouraged me to use it in our program.

GoCheck Kids  is especially useful for our Early Head Start children ages birth to 3 who are not yet able to comply with other methods of vision screening for children. It has also been helpful for screening our older Head Start preschoolers who, for various reasons, were unable to be screened using other methods.

I would and have recommended GoCheck Kids to other Head Start and Early Head Start agencies.  It has allowed us to do a better and more comprehensive job of vision screening.”

Over 230,000 kids have been screened.
