Howard Palmer has cochlear implants as a result of profound hearing loss in both ears.
Mandy and Jaime Palmer, Howard’s parents, discovered his hearing loss when he failed the newborn hearing screening in his left ear. The Palmers were referred to the Callier Center, where Howard receives a continuum of care including audiology services through the Cochlear Implant Program, speech-language therapy, and deaf education in the Callier Child Development Program.
Howard has made progress in all areas of development. He is able to communicate better with his teachers and his peers, and he is able to express his emotions appropriately.
“I don’t know that there is a better place for us and for Howard than Callier. It was the best decision we ever made.” — Jaime Palmer, Howard’s father
