WELCOME TO SOUND SENSE!

What are your favourite sounds? Music? Your friends' voices? Nature? These sounds make us feel good, but when sound becomes noise, it can hurt our ears - or even cause hearing loss! Sound Sense is all about taking care of your hearing so that you'll be able to hear good sounds for your whole life!

HOW DO WE HEAR?

Our sense of hearing is one of the body’s most amazing systems. But, HOW does it work? And what makes it NOT work? Let’s fly down an ear canal and find out what’s going on.

PARENTS/TEACHERS

How can you protect your children from noise-induced hearing loss?

Parents - learn about the issue and adopt safe listening strategies in the home and at play.

Teachers, introduce your students to Sound Sense, the elementary education program that will help prevent permanent noise damage
