The McKittrick Story

When Conner was 10 months old we found out he was profoundly deaf. At 13 months of age, he received a cochlear implant and because of this, he was able to attend a mainstream school and lives a life with little impairment. His speech and language is still delayed but within normal limits. As his eyesight degenerates, he has trouble with dark areas, but his sense of humor and supportive family help him to overcome the challenges he meets each day. Now, with the birth of our fourth son Dalton who was born with profound deafness, we are undergoing the process for cochlear implants once again. We work harder than ever to support research to find a cure for our sons and all of those with hearing and vision related disorders.
