Raising my hard-of-hearing son

(Updated: )

Shaun and Leanne were stumped when their son Dylan was born with hearing loss. How could they raise a child who couldn’t hear what they were saying? Dylan is now 4 and studying in a mainstream kindergarten, but his parents are at a crossroads. Shaun and Leanne want him to get a cochlear implant, but the operation comes at a risk. Before they can even do it, there's a problem lurking in Dylan’s middle ear – a non-cancerous growth that is causing his hearing to deteriorate further.
