The Listening Project

Watch this eye-opening two-minute trailer of a new documentary about the lives and experiences of 14 deaf young adults who use listening and spoken language. Identified at an early age, these young adults benefitted from the early use of cochlear implants and hearing aids.

The 35-minute documentary is a joint product of award winning director Irene Taylor Brodsky and audiologist Jane Madell, Ph.D. Dr. Madell is the former director of the Beth Israel/New York Eye and Ear Hearing and Learning Center and clinical professor at both New York Medical Center and Albert Einstein Medical College. Many of the 20 to 30-year old adults who appear in the film were first identified by her as deaf when they were infants.

As Dr. Madell says, “See what is possible for deaf children and adults with today’s technology, and listen to what they have to say.”

Watch the trailer below. Or learn more about purchasing a DVD copy.
