Cynthia Jones
Mom to Molly — age 15

Cynthia Jones is mom to Molly, age 15.  Molly is a 9th grader in her local public school.  She was diagnosed at birth through the newborn hearing screening program with profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss.  She has a cochlear implant for her right ear and a hearing aid for her left ear, but has chosen to use only the hearing aid at this time. Her primary mode of communication is ASL, and she enjoys photography, eating out, watching YouTube videos, and shopping (not necessarily in that order!).  Molly was also diagnosed with Autism at the age of five.  When Cynthia is not parenting Molly, she is an exceptional child educator at a local high school.
