Creative Mom Designs Superhero Hearing Aids To Boost Deaf Son's Confidence

Physical ailments are an unfortunate reality of life for many. And while they are tricky to live with in and of themselves, they can be particularly difficult for children, who are still learning about and adapting to the world.

That's why when Sarah Ivermee discovered that her son was deaf, then heard that one of her daughter's friends with a hearing ailment felt isolated from her peers because of her aid, she created a line of decorated hearing devices. Now, her four-year-old son is envied by his hearing friends instead of being set apart from them.

Her idea eventually resulted in the establishment of Lugs back in 2014.

This is a company which produces custom-made kits for children's hearing devices that allow them to become superheroes or simply make their hearing aids or cochlear implants looks more pleasing to the eye.

"I am so pleased every time my inbox pings and I receive a thank you email accompanied with pictures of children wearing Lugs on their hearing devices and loving them," Ivermee wrote on Limping Chicken.

"Needless to say, our son Freddie reaps the most benefit from the business, as he gets to choose new designs every month, making all his hearing friends at school very jealous!"

So, if you know of a child who is hard of hearing and think they could benefit from a Lugs kit, you know what to do.

Similarly, if you know of a child who has to wear a medical helmet, point them in the direction of this artist.
