Olivia was diagnosed with profound hearing loss at birth. She received cochlear implants at 10 mos of age, and the rest is history! She worked really hard in her speech therapy sessions until the age of three and then participated in the preschool pilot program of the Clarke School for Hearing and Speech in Orlando for the remainder of last school year and the results of that were nothing short of AMAZING! Within the six months of the program, she far exceeded our expectations. We are able to have converations with our deaf child -- something we were not sure we would ever do, but are grateful for EVERY day.
The summer program will keep Olivia learning throughout the summer and hopefully avoid the regression which is anticipated without services. Please help to keep her learning to listen and speak by donating today!
