Little Faye Allwood, 8 months old, has just had placement of simultaneous bilateral implants in a 5 hour procedure at Vergelegen Mediclinic on the 14th of March 2016, Somerset West, South Africa. Faye was born with profound sensori-neural hearing loss, that was picked up at birth through routine screening. Her older sister, Kate, 7, also has bilateral cochlear implants done at 6 and 11 months of age. Kate's hearing problem was also picked up at birth through routine hearing screening. Both girls can count themselves as part of the lucky few getting early screening, early diagnosis and appropriate referral and early intervention. Kate has attended mainstream schools since the age of 2, and is really excited for the opportunity to help her sister learn to talk and aquire language.
