There are many children living with hearing loss across the country, and the fear of standing out from their peers, or being teased for their differences, often makes their situations worse. Hearing aids that can enable them to join in with others and hear as well as they can are, ironically, often the source of ridicule or stress for young people & they become very conciouss about their hearing loss.
Sarah Ivermee, whose four-year-old son is deaf in one ear and has hearing loss in the other, came up with a brilliant solution to this problem, and created her company, Lugs, to share it with other children across the world. Ivermee invented hearing aid decorations that transform children’s hearing aids and make them the star of the school playground! You can find out more about Lugs here.
Mum Designs Fun Solution For Son’s Hearing Aid
Sarah Imervee wanted to create a solution for her son and other children with hearing loss who wear hearing aids, and her designs are a delight to the children who wear them. The designs produced by Lugs include:
- Star Wars
- Peppa Pig
And many more popular themes! The company produces decorations for cochlear implants and for hearing aids, and includes vinyls, stickers and charms to decorate in the child’s chosen style. Each set covers the outer part of a pair of hearing aids or implants, or can cover both sides on a singular device. Devices like these can make it easier for children to accept hearing loss. Remember the superhero eye patches for small children for eyesight? Same principal here.
