December 12, 2012—(originally featured in the Hampshire Gazette) It’s midmorning on a recent school day and fifth-grader Fred Murray is preparing for the start of art class at Leeds School. A blond boy with a big vocabulary and an easy smile, he stands in the hallway, eagerly awaiting classmates.

Before he goes in, he has an important chore to perform. With help from his teacher, Fred tests a small portable transmitter he will “sync up” to his Cochlear implants, surgically placed electronic devices that allow him to hear. Once linked to the implants, the transmitter can make a teacher speaking across the room sound as though they were directly in front of him.

His fellow fifth-graders arrive and he heads into the classroom with them, joining in the friendly chaos of the morning’s assignment — making decorative tiles and holiday ornaments out of clay.
