yea rs now? he has been hearing for two years so he has the hearing ability ofa years so he has the hearing ability of a 2—year—old. his speech is nobody seems to use their own bikes, their own scooters any more. delayed, probably just spa of a 2—year—old. his speech is delayed, probablyjust spa past the we've got here the electric bikes, basics. he will shout mummy and they are being charged at the moment, and over there, a line full of electric scooters. they are everywhere. harry, his brother, he will say his name. he attends a mainstream school it seems that everybody in madrid and can hear the teacher calling him is using them to move around. and they are just part of the story. and can hear the teacher calling him and he wears a radio aid. he is faced with some of the worst pollution in europe, desperate to be doing something. city officials hope to reduce it theo, look at the man. theo, how old by 40% by taking the most polluting vehicles off the road in a plan are you. four. so is theo hearing they call madrid central. what you and i hear or is it a meanwhile, on all the roads once created to adapt the city around different kind of hearing?m the new automobiles of the time, new spaces are being created for pedestrians. what you and i hear or is it a different kind of hearing? it is a different kind of hearing? it is a different sound. we know that from our work using this implant in gran via is the newest adults who have gone deaf because of street from the beginning of the 20th century. tumours on the nerve. what normal tour guide pedro agreed to show me around. hearing is like and have developed it's fantastic because, as a guide, i can see what is called post lingual you from this point of view, from this place for the first time since the renovation. deafness. they describe it as an
7:19 am
almost robotic type of sound. so you do not get the tones i've never been able to look at this building from this angle. of normal speech which makes it hard this is because all this is new, right? to understand. programming is also it was full of traffic going around and it was almost impossible. difficult for a child who has never now it is a new space for the people. heard and one of the real challenges excellent, excellent. all new for pedestrians, for the people, no cars. i love it. how is it affecting you and the visitors, is the work that the paediatric the fact that we've got audiologists do to maximise the madrid central, that we have more pedestrians signals that theo is getting in his on the street, less traffic? brain and to help him understand gran via or the city centre is never quiet. that this is a new sensation. it is this is a very alive city, it's crazy, it's amazing. we can feel less traffic a major operation still, isn't it? i and we can feel a better air. it's fantastic. mean... the fear, i cannot imagine the fear. of what you would say to of course, madrid isn't the first other parents who have children with hearing difficulties? for me it is to try to remove cars from its city centre. around giving him the ability to hear a around giving him the ability to heara danger around giving him the ability to by working with companies offering hear a danger signal. so the greener electric options, practicalities? i want him to there are more ways to explore the centre than ever.
