Just 18 months ago, Jamie could only use his own form of sign language to communicate. Profoundly deaf, he was living in a silent world.
But Jamie, who is now three, had a cochlear implant fitted and has progressed from speaking two words to 100.
Now, he is settling into mainstream nursery in Hull - something his parents, always hoped for.
His mother Lisa said: "We always wanted him to go to in to mainstream education. He had always been down on the school books, even when they knew he had hearing loss. But when we found out how bad his hearing was, there was a chance he might not have been able to go.
"All we ever wanted was for him to go to the same school as his big sister, Mikyla. We wanted him to come here from day one – it's fantastic, we’re so proud of him."
