Did You Know?
The decibel (dB) is the unit used to measure how loud sound is. Loud noises over 85dB can permanently damage the inner ear which results in life-changing hearing loss.
Here are some common sounds and their decibel levels:
|110 dB||Baby Crying|
|157 dB||Balloon Pop|
There are many resources on the web that can be beneficial in researching services and information for the deaf or hard of hearing. We have listed some helpful websites that can both inform and empower families looking for support and assistance.
