August 2011 - Hope

Due to advancements in technology, there is a high probability that Madison will one day learn to hear and speak just like you and I.  Most people are surprised when I tell them this but basically there are two options regarding how to communicate/raise a deaf child – learn sign language or through spoken language.  There is a device called a cochlear implant (CI), which enables someone who is profoundly deaf to hear (see above).  We plan on learning as much as possible regarding cochlear implants and hope that this is an option for Madison.
