Anzo P., at almost age two, was one of the first children in the United Kingdom to have cochlear implants in both ears. Unfortunately, he and his parents received no follow-up training or therapy needed to make best use of the implants. His parents, Dushyant and Florence, were at a loss and felt adrift until a friend told them about John Tracy Clinic. When they signed up for JTC’s International Summer Session in July 2007, Anzo, age 2, had not yet begun to talk. Before coming to JTC, Anzo’s parents’ primary focus was getting the implants. Now, they would learn about giving their child speech and language.

Several months ago, we set out to create a new brand that reflects this commitment. We are pleased to unveil our new logo, the result of a strategic rebranding process that included stakeholder research and consultation with a creative director (whose time was generously donated for the project).
