Safe Listening Education Needs to be a Major Health Priority, Parents Say

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) May 03, 2012

Seventy-five percent of parents say teaching children how to use personal audio technology safely should be a major health priority, according to results of a new online poll commissioned by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

One thousand parents with children age 18 and under at home took the poll this past March. It defined personal audio technology as devices where headphones or ear buds are used (iPods, other MP3 players, cell phones, computers, and the like). Crux Research created the poll content in consultation with ASHA, while the survey firm Toluna fielded the poll.
