MARCH 4, 2020: Excitement erupted inside the Chinese Benevolent Association in St Andrew Tuesday morning when three-year-old Clayon Elvin, through the help of the Starkey Hearing Foundation, discovered sound for the first time. Clayon’s mother, Suzette Morais, told The Gleaner that she believes a tragedy she experienced while pregnant led to her son being born deaf. Morais said life has been difficult for her, noting that she uses touch and hand gestures to communicate with her son.
