Celebrating #NationalSiblingDay  with an adorable sibling pair from #TheDePaulSchool !

Brandon and Nathan are three years old. After initially passing their newborn hearing screening, they were diagnosed with Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder and progressive hearing loss shortly after birth. Brandon and Nathan both use two cochlear implants to hear. They started in DePaul’s Toddler-Parent Program at 18 months old and are now in DePaul’s Preschool. Their older brother Daniel also uses two cochlear implants to help him hear. He attended DePaul School for five years and transitioned to his neighborhood school in first grade. Daniel is now in third grade.

Brandon and Nathan are energetic little boys who love music and dancing. They enjoy playing with their two older brothers and listening to them play musical instruments. “I no longer fear that my children won’t enjoy music,” says their mother Jennifer, “they hear music and they love it!”
