Boy With Paralyzed Vocal Chords Speaks With Electrolarynx For First Time

We’ve all seen some of the incredible videos of deaf people hearing for the first time, thanks to new technologies that make it possible.

Every time we swear we’re not going to cry, and every time we’re wrong. Well, this video is similar, but with a twist. A five year old boy had paralyzed vocal cords and a speech professional was guiding him to use an Electrolarynx for the first time.

It’s sad to see kids with such debilitating disabilities, but seeing the excitement and joy in his face is amazing.
