Our daughter, Penelope, received her first cochlear implant at the age of 3½ and the second implant two years later. Immediately after the first implant was activated, she started twice weekly sessions of Auditory-Verbal Therapy with Jilinda Robinson at HEAR In Dallas. With hearing and the help she receives from her therapist, Penelope’s speech and vocabulary are improving and she is learning to understand many things our family talks about. Penelope loves to listen to music and looks forward to her Hip Hop dance class each week. We are so happy with her progress. Our lives have changed in so many positive ways now that she can hear and is learning to talk. We are so blessed with everyone that has helped us.
