Health Tip: Protect Your Child’s Hearing

(HealthDay News) — Schools are chock-full of loud and potentially destructive sounds, including crowded hallways, buses, band practices and sporting events.

Over time, repeated exposure to these noisy environments can harm your child’s hearing, the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders says.

To help protect your child’s hearing, the agency suggests:

  • Send your child to school with earplugs to use if the child feels like a certain environment is too loud.
  • Teach your child about how the ears work and how hearing can be harmed by loud noise.
  • Schedule a hearing test for your child.
  • Raise awareness within the school about noise-induced hearing loss.
