Jerome

“As a baby, my son Jerome always loved music—he was even humming tunes at ten months old! At two years old, Jerome was hitting all of his other development milestones, but he wasn't talking. Because Jerome passed a hearing screening at birth, we didn't learn of his condition—sensorineural hearing loss—until he was around two years old.

"He was immediately fitted with hearing aids to help him maximize his residual hearing. Even though he's only been at Clarke for a year, Jerome has made tremendous progress. Now he's talking up a storm and singing along with me every day at home. He's even reminding me to help him put his hearing aids in every day! I encourage families to trust their instincts—if your child isn't talking, get them tested! And remember to have hope, because it’s amazing what our children can do.”

—Beverly Owens, Clarke Philadelphia parent
