Sensory Solutions: Earmuffs

Vacuum-cleaners, blenders, too many voices... all of these wreck havoc on little, sensitive ears. So here's Laura sporting her solution. Earmuffs! These are Silencio Low Pro-2000. They are easy to put on and have held up to a lot of wear and tear.

We also have Howard Leight R-01526 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuffs which are normally used in construction and on firing ranges. When they are turned off, they have a noise reduction rating of 22. When turned on, they allow normal sounds up to 82 decibles to be heard. If environmental noise goes above 82, they turn off and automatically muffle the noise. When noise levels drop, they turn back on. So when it is loud, they muffle noise. When it is not, the child can hear you. Pretty sweet.

When my kids were tiny, I kept these on a low shelf, so that anyone who needed them could toddle over and put them on. Now we use them primarily when vacuuming or when extra focus is needed for school work. They are also handy at air shows and parades. Some days, they are life savers.
