It is difficult to comprehend how a deaf baby would respond when he hears some sound for the first time ever!
This cute little boy Lachlan Lever was diagnosed as having moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears.
He received his first hearing aids and the use of something similar to these hearing amplifiers when he was 7 weeks old. His reaction when they were turned on was truly amazing. His parents, Toby and Michelle, were in tears due to immense happiness.
Watch it here…
Soon after Lachlan received his hearing aids, he was linked into the Early Intervention Service, Tarayle, the oral language centre for deaf children.
The use of hearing aids can significantly help young children in their development and can help them to progress at a similar rate as others. It also helps them to hear what is happening around them. Interpreting is another option for Lachlan and other people who suffer from hearing impairments to go about their daily lives. This could be particularly helpful during job interviews or when they are going to see a performance. Just giving them that extra support with their hearing could help them to excel in their lives and it could all start with a hearing aid.
This beautiful little boy is now two years old and doing remarkably well.
God bless him!
