Lindsey and Jorge Villon founded the The Wonder of Sound in 2019 to provide awareness, funding, and support to Auditory Verbal (AVUK). The Wonder of Sound 2023 Gala marked the 4th anniversary of the musical event in aid of AVUK and was held in London at BAFTA in Piccadilly
Jorge and Lindsey Villon started the charity after experiencing first-hand the work of AVUK for their daughter, Grace, who was born profoundly deaf. Today, Grace speaks and interacts like any hearing child due to AVUK’s unique approach to auditory verbal therapy and their dedicated staff.
Through AVUK’s highly specialised, intensive early-intervention programme, as many as 80% of deaf children who spend two or more years on the programme achieve ‘age appropriate’ language skills.
