It’s been almost four years since our then 1 ½ year old daughter, Aliza, was implanted by Dr. Peters. Seeing her rapid development of clear speech, we eagerly decided to bilaterally implant our son, Lil’ B when his deafness was diagnosed. Shortly after his first birthday, he was implanted and Aliza received her 2nd implant. Lil’ B. has been “awakened” by sound. He adores hearing himself make all sorts of sounds– when he hears someone laugh; he starts laughing too. Both kids see Linda Daniel for their auditory-verbal therapy sessions. After just a few months of hearing, our son’s progress assures us he will catch up with his sister soon. We know our decisions will serve our children well now and in the future and it holds endless possibilities for them.
