Andy and Jo Callaghan’s son Sam was born profoundly deaf in 2011. Sam received cochlear implants just before his first birthday. Early intervention with Auditory Verbal Therapy enabled Sam to attain age-appropriate speech and attend mainstream Primary School. Andy was previously a trustee of Auditory Verbal UK.
