One-year-old boy able to hear normally for first time
October 4, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A one-year-old boy is able to hear normally for the first time, thanks to a new set of hearing aids.
Logan Heneghan failed his infant hearing tests, though doctors aren't sure why. He was diagnosed with moderate hearing loss after a sedated auditory brainstem response test, and needs hearing aids to hear the full range of frequencies.
Thanks to Easter Seals and Early Intervention, his hearing aids will be paid-for until he turns three.
Logan's mother Rachel says she hopes to introduce her son to other children with hearing loss so that he knows he's not alone. In the meantime, Logan and his 2-year-old brother Aidyn talk loudly to each other when Logan's hearing aids aren't in.
