Deaf since birth, 3-year-old Grayson Clamp of Charlotte, North Carolina was born without a cochlear nerve and recently received an auditory brain stem implant, the first time it’s ever been put in a child from the United States. In this video, you can watch the very sweet and touching moment as he hears his dad’s voice for the very first time. UNC Health Care has more of the story.
“I’ve never seen a look like that today,” said Grayson’s father, Len Clamp, of the day that the implant was turned on for the first time. “I mean, he looked deep into my eyes. He was hearing my voice for the first time. It was phenomenal.”
