Did you know….
This is what your ear looks like on the inside?
The Cochlea looks just like Slakkie, Captain Hear’Os new friend!
Captain Hear’O and Dr. Audie want to help you protect your ears! Our ears are very sensitive to loud noises and if we listen to loud music from our earphones, or working in constant noise like your dad’s factory, or listening to a lawnmower or even an ambulance siren, can permanently damage our ears!
Luckily there are things we can do to help prevent damage to our ears. Damage can cause us to lose our hearing. Here are some things to think about to help you know if you might already have some hearing loss:
Do your ears hurt a lot?
Can your one ear hear better than the other?
Do you struggle to hear people talking when driving in a car?
Do you struggle to hear your teacher in the class?
Does it feel like something is in your ear?
If you answered YES to any of those questions, ask your mom, dad, granny or teacher to phone Dr. Audie for a Hearing Screening.
Wondering if it will hurt and if you have to be scared?
Wondering how you can help Captain Hear'O and Dr. Audie to protect your ears?
The Loud Lads use these noises that can harm your ears:
- police vehicles
- ice-cream trucks
- vacuum cleaners
- loud music
Captain Hear'O has lots of adventures that are all captured in his story book & comic collection!
