Let Your School Know You Are Concerned

Let your school know you are concerned. Request that your child be seated as far as possible from any routers, and/or request that your child not be placed in a room containing a router.  Request that routers be labeled, so that those who wish to avoid them can do so.  Write a letter indicating that you do not consent for your child to be exposed to Wi-Fi radiation (see examples).

Talk to Your Friends

Attend Information Sessions

Attend information sessions on wireless communication, when they are available.

Talk to Your Doctor

Talk to your doctor.  Increasingly, medical groups are beginning to recognize the health risks associated with wireless communication devices.  Womens’ College Hospital is now diagnosing and helping people with Electrohypersensitivity (EHS).  The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Environmental Medicine have also recently released statements calling for precaution, and a tightening of the current safety limits.

  • Headaches (while at school)
  • Dizziness/vertigo
  • Nausea
  • Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
  • Racing/irregular heartrate
