Turn Up the Volume - Raghav Gets a Cochlear Implant
When Raghav was born, he failed his newborn hearing test. From that moment on, Sanath and Ramya knew that his hearing was going to be an issue – they just did not know how big an issue it would be.
After many tests, they learned he had auditory neuropathy. It seemed that his hearing was inconsistent; it was like the connection was loose. Sometimes he would react to sound and other times he had no reaction.
They began a search for a solution.
In this episode, we hear about the options they looked at before finally deciding to go with a Cochlear Implant. We talk about how a cochlear implant works and the high-tech capabilities it has. We also hear the surprising results of this change and the impact it is having on their lives.
