BRING NOISE-INDUCED HEARING LOSS PREVENTION TO YOUR CLASSROOM AND COMMUNITY!

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is currently on the rise among the school-age population due to the increasing use of recreational devices and activities that put kids at risk. There is some good news: noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable. By educating kids and teens about this very important subject, we can help them change their attitudes and behaviours toward protecting their hearing.


How we can help:

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS

If you have a group of educators you would like to reach regarding noise-induced hearing loss prevention for kids and teens, please let us know. We may be able to provide a seminar or workshop on this topic at regional, provincial, or national organizational meetings to create awareness of NIHL prevention for those who work directly with kids and teens.

Our seminars and workshops include information on:

  • Importance of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) prevention
