Mia's grandparents noticed early on that she was not responding to sound. Their search for help led them to audiologist and Auditory-Verbal
Therapist Linda Daniel as well as the Dallas Ear Institute and the Dallas Hearing Foundation where Mia received a cochlear implant. Mia
and her family participate in the parent-based therapy services at HEAR In Dallas where she is learning to talk.
Mia received a cochlear implant from Dr. Robert Peters of the Dallas Ear Institute and the Dallas Hearing Foundation: in this feature, she
hears for the very first time. Watch as Rehabilitative Audiologist and Auditory-Verbal Therapist Linda Daniel talks about the process Mia
will go through as she learns to recognize the new sounds she can hear.
Follow up on Mia's progress as she uses her new sense of hearing and participates in Auditory-Verbal Therapy.
