Returning To A Hearing World

Donna Sorkin, Douglas Lynch and Sigrid Cerf were not born deaf. Each lost their hearing post-lingually - after they were exposed to sound and language. Each received cochlear implants as adults, and have been found success with the results.

Sigrid Cerf became deaf when she was three years old. She received her cochlear implant two years ago, at the age of 50.

Douglas Lynch lost his hearing suddenly when he was 26. Two years later, he received his implant.

Donna Sorkin gradually lost her hearing through her childhood, then more noticeably in her 20s. Sorkin received her CI at age 40.
