Please help Jasmine to hear

November 19, 2015

Jasmine is 4 and has profound unilateral hearing loss. We have just found out she can have a cochlear implant, to bring sound to her deaf ear.

Jasmine starts school in March but struggles in noisy environments and when she can't see someone talking. She lipreads and follows instructions by copying what others are doing. Her speech has been delayed and she has gaps in her vocabulary. She becomes easily frustrated by the sheer exhaustion of straining to hear all day long and racing to keep up. Jasmine wears an FM system but she misses out on what others around her are saying.

She is nevertheless a cheerful and bright girl, who we are determined will meet her potential.

The Government does not fund cochlear implants for a child with one profoundly deaf ear and Jasmine's family would appreciate your support.

Thanks again
