Inspirational video: 11-year old Ashley shows his life with Treacher Collins and Baha sound processors

This is a great and powerful film about Ashley, an 11-year old boy with Treacher Collins Syndrome and hearing loss.

He was born without a jaw, cheekbones and ears. As he cannot use in-the-ear hearing aids, Ashley has bilateral Baha implants to help him hear.

In this short film, Ashley shows us how he gets around the daily challenges that his symptoms present and how he deals with the bullying that he has experienced as a result.

Very moving – and what an amazing, inspirational kid!
