Using their heads to hear

-A A +A

Dylan Yates and Derek Comingore  (right) have cochlear implants – small, complex electronic devices that help provide a sense of sound to both Clear Creek Elementary students, who are hearing-impaired. They meet consistently with their special-resource teacher, Mary Jane Kimball. However, each Friday afternoon, they interact with her son, Adam, 23, who has cerebral palsy and is also hearing impaired. The college student serves as a mentor for their reading – and during game time, like this fun scene from playing “Headbanz” during which they ask questions and try to guess the word on their headband.
