I hope you enjoy this video of Lucas as much as I do. It really puts a smile on my face every morning when I put his hearing aids in. Sometimes he vocalizes more, but I was just happy that he was performing for the camera! Enjoy!
Lucas was born with profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss to two hearing parents. He wore hearing aids starting at 3 months, but he got no benefit from them, as we soon found out. He received a cochlear implant in his right ear 3 days after his first birthday. His second ear was implanted 1 month before his third birthday. Cochlear implants have changed Lucas's life immensely. This site was developed to chronicle his life and progress learning to listen and speak!
