A Day in the Life:
A Child with "Magic Ears"


Local AB recipient Tylissa is a lively, energetic little girl who loves to communicate with her friends and family. Here, her mother Nicole describes in her own words how AB's innovative technologies have helped Tylissa grow and develop her language skills at a crucial stage.

“Tylissa was bilaterally implanted with Advanced Bionics cochlear implants when she was one year old. They have enabled her to communicate everyday with her friends and family. They help her join in, laugh, and play happily in and out of water.”

Growing and Developing Language Skills

“As her mother, it is an amazing feeling to see how Tylissa understands sounds, to watch her grow and develop her language skills.”

Summing it Up: Life-Changing Technology

“We call her implants her 'magic ears', and they have been an absolute life changer for Tylissa and our entire family. There are some activities she would have never been able to enjoy without her 'magic ears', and we are very grateful.”
