Health Tip: Protect Your Child's Hearing

Noise-induced hearing loss can affect almost every aspect of a person's life, including the ability to speak and communicate.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests how to protect children from noise-induced hearing loss:

  • Look for sources of loud noise, such as lawn mowers, music or power tools, and reduce your child's exposure.
  • Keep the volume low while listening to music.
  • If loud noise can't be avoided, have the child wear hearing protection.
  • If you are concerned about hearing loss, have the child's hearing professionally evaluated.
