Sam’s mum wrote "Our son Sam has hearing aids fitted in October 2019, at 5 years old. He’s made fantastic progress with his speech and this month has been discharged from SLIC services. He has worked incredibly hard with his reading and is now reading at the level expected for his age group. We are so proud of what he has achieved. I feel the most exciting development has been the growth is Sam’s confidence, he’s always loved playing sports at home with his Dad and Grandad but was very shy and withdrew from joining in at our local clubs but over the last few months he has began to join in and loves playing with his teammates now. Yes feel this has been a result of having better communication with the use of his hearing aids."
