Audiologist and speech therapist Devangi Dalal is the lady in question.

“I had met Dave in 1998. He realized that for a CA it is important to be heard and understood. We had initially started with analogue hearing aids but later shifted to digital hearing aids. If one interacts with him today they will not even know that he has a hearing disability,” she said as reported by Times of India. 

The website adds that Dalal is the national coordinator of the Indian Speech-Language Association’s special interest group private practice in audiology.

She has also helped another boy overcome his hearing loss.  

“I have been checking him and giving him hearing aids as per requirement. Today, he runs his own shop and easily interacts with people,” she adds. 

It is to be noted that she is the only audiologist from India to be appointed in the advocacy committee of Coalition Global Hearing Health (CGHH) that works with the World Health Organization (WHO).

In another instance, she helped a deaf adolescent boy had shifted to Mumbai from Bengaluru and was finding it tough to cope up with schools in Mumbai despite doing good in his CBSE school.

“I advised his parents to use the best digital hearing aids and also told them to make him practice monitoring his voice. He took part in one talent contest in which he came first and suddenly his confidence boosted up. Later, he stood first in disabled category with 91% in Class XII, did engineering from SP Jain Institute and completed masters from the United States where he is settled now,” she adds.
