Lice Lifters Offers a Free Educational Program About the Prevention and Treatment of Lice

Head lice affects anyone, regardless of age, socioeconomic background or hair texture. It’s a common epidemic among school children who tend to share their personal belongings often. Adults must teach their kids how to protect themselves from getting infested. They should also know how to get treatment. Lice Lifters is a program in which speakers will come to your school and speak to students for free.

What You Need To Know

Highlights of Our Program

The goal of Lice Lifters is to teach young students, parents and teachers about proper lice prevention and treatment. We speak at local schools, especially ones that have had no lice education programs. Our speeches and demonstrations are only 30 minutes only, so we do not disrupt the busy schedules of students and teachers. After the demonstration, we pass out free informational handouts to take home for further reading.

Prevention Is Key

Preventing lice is the first step to treating it. This infestation has several causes, and the most common one is uncleanliness. Washing the hair regularly with soap and water and showering daily are two major steps to preventing an infestation. Not sharing personal items like combs and towels is another important step.
Discover Our Education Program For Summer Camps
“Caring for Camps” is our latest outreach program, and it’s designed to bring parents and children peace of mind in dealing with these parasitic insects that infest 6 to 12 million people a year nationwide. We can send our licensed technicians out to your summer camp to educate as well as to actually do head checks for lice.

Separating Myths
From Facts

When the HIV/AIDS epidemic first began, many people had misconceptions about the illness and thought that it was contagious through casual contact. Head lice infestation is another disease that is known for both its myths and facts.

Many people think that only the “dirty” kids get lice. It is true that the insects that cause lice are common in developing countries, but rarely seen in developed countries. But that doesn’t mean that clean, well-groomed American and British kids can never get it.

Another myth is that you get lice by casual contact. You can get lice from sharing personal items, but you don’t get it from shaking hands, hugging or touching kids who are infested. It’s important that kids, parents and teachers learn these facts to avoid ostracizing other kids. Lice is a time of great distress for any child. It’s a time of physical discomfort, mental anguish and a great deal of confusion. In Chadds Ford and beyond, Lice Lifters help parents and teachers to educate their kids about this problem.
