This is an exciting milestone... Lucas has begun to point to his ear when he hears something new, or when I ask: "do you hear that?" It has taken a little over 3 months, but it's here, and I'm thrilled!
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!
