Cochlear Implants have given Hannah many more opportunities than she would have had without them. She is able to enjoy family and friends by being able to communicate through spoken language. ~Lisa, mother of Hannah
Adopted from Guatemala at the age of 11 months, Hannah’s deafness was diagnosed at 13 months of age. She received her first cochlear implant at 22 months, and her second cochlear implant at 2½ years. She attended pre-school and received listening therapy services at CASTLE.
Today, Hannah is a mainstreamed 3rd grade student; she uses bilateral personal FM with her CIs so she can hear her teachers without having to work so hard to keep up with classroom instruction.
She enjoys playing baseball and loves to listen to classical music, especially the Nutcracker.
