Static poses risk to deaf children

According to this Boston Globe article, children have two choices. Play on the slide without sound or join recess with sound, but no slides. I guess that’s one benefit of growing up with a hearing aid and box. As a child, I slid my heart as I was lousy on the monkey bars.
Thank goodness static touch from other people doesn’t mess with the implant. Been getting serious shocks lately as the weather turns colder.
