With Technology and Hard Work, My Son Eiler Beats the Odds
 
As the mother of a deaf child, I have been intimidated by statistics of low academic achievement, poor literacy skills, and difficulty learning foreign languages for my son Eiler. With the twin graces of medical technology (cochlear implants) and a hard-working personality, he has managed to avoid these difficulties. I don't mean to brag, but of course I'm proud. In eighth grade he won awards for his English as well as Spanish. What a tribute to his many hours of devoted study. It wasn't always this way. Eiler struggled to learn to read. In first grade, he gnawed pencils when it came time to decipher words and sat gripping the edges of his desk in fear of being called upon to read out loud.
 
 
 
Meet Team Campbell. Jean, Mitchell, Trevor, Corey, and Chris. Jean suffered a life-changing, devastating hearing loss injury at last year's Boston Marathon bombing. On April 21, in honor of Jean, the Campbell family ran Boston, their first ever Marathon, and raised funds for HHF! Donate to the Campbell family fundraiser and help us make hearing loss and tinnitus things of the past.
 
 
 
I interviewed Marion Downs in 2007, shortly after her sassy 'senior advice' book, Shut Up and Live! (You Know How) was published. It was only my second assignment for Hearing Health magazine, and I knew little about hearing loss, hearing research, and hearing technology.
