Diagnosed at age 2 1/2 years old
Treatment: Cochlear Implant

Hearing Impairment
Luke Womack

Luke started his hearing journey at 2 1/2 at the Children's HEAR Center. His weekly speech therapy sessions took him from being unable to communicate to an unstoppable chatterbox. At age 5 when his journey took a detour and his hearing dramatically worsened, it was the staff at the HEAR. Center that provided support and guidance to put the journey back on track. We met Dr. Wooley whose skilled hands restored Luke's ability to hear with a cochlear implant. Today Luke is a healthy happy 10-year old who sings in his school chorus, takes guitar lessons, and enjoys the sounds of life we all take for granted. The journey continues with the support of his hearing team, family, and friends.
