“Cochlear implants have put the world in the palm of Allison’s hands, and I know that she can dream big. She can do anything that anyone else can do in this whole world, and I remind her of that all the time.” -Mother of Allison, Nucleus® cochlear implant recipient
When Allison was diagnosed with hearing loss, her whole future flashed before her parents’ eyes. Allison’s parents knew they wanted to give Allison the world, and that that would all start with exploring Cochlear Hearing Implants.
For Allison and her parents, they felt that Cochlear was the best choice because of its reliability record.1-4 “We want Alli to hear all day, every day,” said Allison’s mom.
Today, Allison enjoys various activities, from walking the balance beam at gymnastics to drawing and coloring with her mom. But the most precious of moments is when Allison spends time with her younger sister and teaches her oral language, just as Allison’s parents taught her. Allison’s parents know Cochlear will be a partner in their daughter’s hearing journey, every step of the way.
