Among all the professional activities in which audiologists are involved, one of the most enjoyable is teaching school children about hearing loss prevention. There’s no doubt about it. Unlike diagnostic procedures or aural rehabilitation activities, which are focused on what’s been lost, school-based hearing loss prevention programs focus on what can be gained by learning healthy hearing habits. They provide a positive message that teachers are happy to provide to their students and kids are eager to hear. Few people enjoy learning that they have a hearing loss or need a hearing aid, but nearly everyone is grateful to learn how he or she can continue hearing his or her favorite sounds throughout his or her lifetime. If you haven’t had the chance to get into the classroom and share what you know about this important topic with the teachers in your neighborhood and their students, we encourage you to take the leap. It’s great fun, and it’s tremendously important.
