Meet Jake Steinbach


Meet Jake Steinbach. He is 22 years old and just graduated from high school. Jake currently lives with his mom (Dee), dad (Ernie), and brothers, Connor and Patrick, in Lawrence, Kansas. 

Jake's deaf-blindness was caused by a neural tube defect and hydrocephalus. He has cortical visual impairment and a mild high-frequency hearing loss. He also has a conductive hearing loss and auditory processing disorder. He wears a hearing aid in his left ear, but does not tolerate one in the right.
