About

Oliver was born in April 2012. When he didn’t respond to the new-born hearing screening test we didn’t think too much about it, but it started a chain of events leading to Oliver being diagnosed as deaf at just 6 weeks old. He has worn hearing aids since he was 5 months old and is currently being assessed for cochlear implants. He is now a gorgeous 16 month old little boy with a cheeky smile and lovely temperament.

Oliver is my first ever experience of deafness. 90% of deaf children are born into families with no experience of hearing loss. The last 12 months have been an emotional roller coaster for my son Alan and his wife Katie and their two other boys Thomas and Liam.

Event details

Lorraine's Sky Dive

I am doing a sky dive on Saturday, 14 September.

About the group

In April, Alan and Katie, along with two other parents, established Wigan &Leigh Deaf Children’s Society. It is already an invaluable source of local support fordeaf children and their families. Alan and Katie believe they would havebenefited hugely from a group such as this over the last twelve months.
