Does your child's school provide noise protection ear muffs to students who need them?
Summary: Many children in school classrooms are unable to concentrate because they suffer from Acute Noise Sensitivity. The simple solution is to provide the kids with child sized ear muffs to protect them from the pain noise causes them. Schools cannot afford to buy all the ear muffs they need, so Ear Plug Superstore has launched Share The Relief: For each MyTMuff we sell, we will donate another one to an elementary school for use by their students.
Does your child often cover his ears with his hands? Does he run screaming from the room when a particular part of a song plays on television? Does he have trouble settling down in the classroom to do his work? These and many other indicators may suggest that the child has ANS.
A growing segment of the world’s population suffers from Acute Noise Sensitivity (ANS), meaning they are hypersensitive to general or specific sounds -- a very difficult condition to have in our increasingly noisy world. Sounds from concerts, loud parties and raucous conversations that people with normal hearing can enjoy often cause physical pain to those suffering from ANS. As a result, these unfortunate people -- including very young children through all ages of adults -- live a constrained life: one without concerts, parties and other loud venues. They cannot enjoy even the most mundane amusements, because so many of them include sound levels which those with ANS find physically painful. As a result, these people are often socially withdrawn, depressed, and miserable. Especially troubling are the young children who suffer this condition, without their parents, teachers or care-givers even knowing about it.
Many children with ANS remain undiagnosed throughout their school years, suffering physical pain from the ordinary sounds found in every schoolroom. Children with autism spectrum disorders, as well as those suffering Meniere’s disease and Hyperacusis, which can occur as a side effect of dietary imbalances as well as from a variety of illnesses and health conditions, all may suffer from ANS.
For children suffering from this condition, each day can become a terrible struggle, and because this condition is not out there in the public awareness, it is quite likely in most cases that the child is simply left to suffer in a painfully noisy world from which they can rarely escape.
The simple solution is to provide the child with a pair of child-sized noise protection ear muffs. With this inexpensive and perfectly safe hearing protection, your child may get the relief he needs to experience life in a whole new way.
Some enlightened school administrators have begun to equip their classrooms with ear muffs for use by all their students, for when the kids are taking tests. They have found that simply giving the kids relief from distracting noises enables the children to perform much better on their exams.
At Ear Plug Superstore we have created Share the Relief, a program in which we donate a child ear muff to a school for each MyTMuff we sell. We invite you to learn about our program and help us get the word out about this crippling disorder and the simple solution for those who suffer from ANS.
