Ernst Lehnhardt Foundation continues to support CI patients in Ukraine

In collaboration with German clinics, the Ernst Lehnhardt Foundation has once again been able to help a deaf patient hear their best. In conflict-torn eastern Ukraine, the Dikov family urgently needed a replacement for their Esprit 3G processor. Dr. Monika Lehnhardt was able to secure it from a German family, and to transfer it to Ukraine. Here is the letter the Dikovs wrote to express their thankfulness:

Dear Dr. Monika Lehnhardt!

dikovFrom the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you for the gift of which we could only dream.
Our son Viktor lost his hearing aged two after contracting an illness. From the age of three we started taking him to Kiev for diagnostics and tutoring. Perseverance and hard work took us through this long and painstaking journey from the first unintelligible sounds to conscious speech. We changed several generations of hearing aids, and made the goal.
Now our son is 19 years old. He studies in college at the same level as his hearing peers. His speech is adequate; his personality undergoes all-round development and growth, and communicaton with peers is there.
In February 2010 Viktor received his Nucleus 24 Cochlear implant at the Kyiv I. A. Kolomiychenko Otolaryngology Institute. He currently uses the Esprit 3G processor.
Sadly, our finances made it impossible to buy a new one.
Now, though, thanks to you, our son has the new Freedom processor, which will open to him wonderful possibilities in perceiving and learning the world, and in further all-embracing development.
A great thank you to you, Dr. Monika, for caring so much for a stranger’s child from far-away Ukraine. Wishing you long years of well-being and health. Peace and wellness to you and your home. May God keep you from all trouble and reward you for your kindness.

Yours respectfully,
the Dikov family

Auditory verbal Therapy Opinion Leader Dimity Dornan made Officer of the Order of Australia

Speech pathologist Dimity Dornan has been made an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for her work teaching deaf children to listen and speak.

She started a free clinic in the early 1990s and her not-for-profit Hear and Say centres now help more than 600 children – many of them profoundly deaf – using cochlear implants and the latest technology.

“I say to parents, it’s when the child’s life has turned from black and white, into rainbow,” Dr Dornan told the ABC.

“If they’ve had no hearing, everything is a wonder and then as they develop it’s absolutely magic for the parents when they start to say things back like ‘I love you’ or ‘Mummy’ or ‘Daddy’.

“It’s an awesome thing to do, and it’s my pleasure.”

Dr Dornan hopes being appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia will help her change the lives of more children around the world.

“My dream goes much further then Australia. My dream goes worldwide,” she said.

We take special pleasure in announcing these news because Dr. Dornan is a PORA speaker with a profile in our blog. She made a number of successful and well-attended presentations in the webinars on March 8th 2012, March 22nd 2o12, then May 10th 2012 and, most recently, on November 11th 2012.
