With an estimated 1.1 billion young people worldwide at risk of developing hearing loss from noisy leisure activities such as misuse of personal audio technology, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is urging parents to help kids protect their ears this summer with a few simple tips.
Unsafe listening practices, such as listening to devices at too high volumes or for too long, can lead to noise-induced hearing loss. While this type of hearing loss is completely preventable, once it occurs, it is irreversible.
