Evelyn failed her newborn hearing screening – twice. Then at six months old she was fit for hearing aids. “She has severe to profound loss in her right ear and a mild to moderate loss in her left.” says her mom. Her right ear was so bad that in October of 2014 she was fit for a cochlear implant. The results have been incredible. She’s communicating more and hearing many sounds for the first time. We asked her parents if she likes to be read to.
“Before, she would barely sit still to look at the pictures. Now she follows along with the words.”
