Illustrated by Jacqui C. Smith
I’m so glad you came by. My name is Billie. I’m four years old and I am also Hard of Hearing. I have bilateral hearing loss due to Microtia.
Microtia is a congenital condition of a little or missing outer ear. I wear my BAHA to be able to hear the world around me.
I go to a school with all my other friends that are also Deaf or Hard of Hearing, but they don’t all wear BAHAs to hear like me. Some of my friends wear behind the ear hearing aids or cochlear implants. I even have one friend that does not wear anything to hear, but we all have one thing in common… we are all SUPER HEARo’s!
My superpowers are kindness and acceptance. Together we will discover communication repair strategies, self-advocacy, and how to bring everyone’s differences together!
