5 Tips to Help Prevent Hearing Loss

  1. Know the signs
    Frequently asking people to repeat themselves, turning up the TV, having difficulty understanding phone conversations, complaining about noise or earaches -these and other signs point to potential hearing loss. Detecting it early can reduce the risk of academic, social, physical, and other problems.
  2. Curb Noise Exposure
    More than 31 million American ages 6 to 69 have permanent hearing damage because of noise, per the Centers for Disease control and Prevention. Reducing exposure to sounds about 85 decibels, curing use of MP3 players, and wearing earplugs even when mowing or using leaf blowers, snowblowers, and weedwackers can go a long way.
  3. Partner with Your School
    Teachers and administrators are critical to helping kids hear their best during the school day with classroom seating arrangements, loop and FM systems, closed captioning, and other supportive options. They can also identify possible signs of hearing loss, such as decreased engagement and changes in grades or behaviors.
  4. Keep Hearing Aids in Top Shape
    If you or your loved ones are already hearing Bette through today’s advanced hearing technology, help keep the devices in their best shape with regular clean and checks in our office. Also, keep extra batteries on hand at home and on the go.
  5. Get a Hearing Checkup
    Take the whole family for a professional hearing valuation at least once a year, just as you would for their eyes or teeth. Timing the visits before summer camp or the new school year, for example, can help you catch any hearing difficulties before they affect your child’s learning and development.
