About 2-3 of every 1,000 children in the United States are born with a detectable hearing loss in one or both ears. And almost 15% of school-age children (ages 6-19) have some degree of hearing loss. That’s why when we get a chance to partner with an organisation like A&E Audiology and donate our time to set up the technology for their A&E Hearing Connection non-profit, we don’t hesitate.
This is Kayleah, one of the beneficiaries of the services A&E provides. She stopped by our office last week to share her story and thank us for helping out. Here is a video that shares Kayleah’s story:
Kayleah told us that she doesn’t consider her hearing aids a disability, but rather a way to use a piece of technology to help her live life to the fullest. We admire her spirit and are inspired by her story. Thanks Kayleah!
