Rachel C. Patient Expert

Atlanta, Georgia
Nearly 18 years ago, I did not understand what sounds meant to me. Every morning for the first few weeks, when I was a rough little three-year old child, my mother had to sit on me in order to get the magnet on my head. I know that sounds cruel of my mother, but I am grateful to her for doing this because she has taught me that it is unimaginable to live in a silent world. Today, I understand...

Although my hearing loss doesn't define me, it has definitely affected me!  I grew up with a bilateral hearing loss that was discovered when I was 4 years old.  I wore a hearing aid and was mainstreamed in school.  It's never been determined what caused my hearing loss, but I suspect it's genetic. In 1993, I lost all the remaining hearing in my right ear (for unknown...

She's learning to hear, to speak, and to sign in a bicultural-bilingual school environment (the Learning Center for the Deaf in Framingham, MA) and...

I write a blog about the journey we're on raising our deaf toddler, Ethan. He has bilateral cochlear implants and hears fairly well with them, yet he is also apraxic and noverbal, so we are using sign language to communicate despite the fact that he hears. He was born with cytomegalovirus, which has left it's imprint on his life in many ways. We're busy going to PT, OT, speech, an allergist, a...

I went suddenly deaf in 1975 at age 4 of unexplained causes. I wore a hearing aid in my one "good" ear for just over 30 years, and then within the space of about a year year I lost all my remaining hearing. In November of 2007 I implanted my right ear and in August of 2008 I implanted my left ear. My speech comprehension scores have jumped from 8% before the implant to 98% after, so I...
