Hands & Voices Guide By Your Side

Denver/Metro Area:


Liesel Thomas
E-mail: liesel@cohandsandvoices.org

Liesel lives in Henderson with her husband, Mike, and three daughters; Sophie (born in 2001), Sarah (born in 2005), and Sylvia (born in 2008).  Sophie and Sylvia are profoundly deaf and Sarah is hearing. After Sylvia was born deaf, a genetic test revealed the cause of hearing loss for the two girls is an autosomal genetic mutation called Connexin 26. The Thomas family goal is bilingualism with both girls having bilateral cochlear implants and ASL as a second language.
