Press Release For Immediate Release
Students And Parents At Jumeira Baccalaureate School Listen Intently To hearLIFE Clinic Presentation Dubai, May 13 – Parents and students were educated about why hearing is so vital, learning more about protection and treatment of hearing loss. Hearing loss in adults and children can go un-‐noticed and it can cause serious challenges when it comes to communication and development in all aspects of life. The hearLIFE Clinic is an otology clinic dedicated to treat hearing loss in adults and children. Their goal is to raise awareness of hearing loss by education campaigns in schools and among other healthcare professionals and institutions. As part of the campaign, screening tests are being offered in schools which will ensure any hearing loss can be detected early and treated as soon as possible. Rachel Jex, the Jumeira Baccalaureate School (JBS) Nurse, said: “The hearLIFE presentation this morning really made our parents and students consider the most simple every day things that really can have an impact on a child’s hearing – the presentations were extremely engaging for parents and children alike -‐ all credit given to hearLIFE for their awareness campaign.’ Parents who attended the presentation saw an instant change in their child’s behavior upon returning home from school today, they asked for the television to be turned down and enquired about their ear cleanliness. All of this shows that the campaign is working and goes to support hearLIFE in achieving its goals. "The hearLIFE Clinic's collaboration with schools like JBS is essential in delivering early awareness about hearing loss. Throughout the early school years, parents and educators should monitor school children's hearing because it can affect their development and education as well as social interactions. Children with undiagnosed hearing problems tend to face difficulties in school and in some cases can be misdiagnosed with laziness or learning difficulties. There are several options for treating hearing problems, but the most important factor is early diagnosis and intervention, especially in children so they can get back on track with their education and make the most of the fun that childhood brings," said Jasmin Beck, CEO hearLIFE Clinic Dubai.
Working closely with hearLIFE allows Jumeira Baccalaureate School, a Taaleem School, to be fully informed about how to support children in school with hearing loss, ensuring any barriers to communication are overcome effectively.
