A little girl who heard her parents' voices for the first time several months ago after receiving a double cochlear implant is continuing to inspire people.

FOX23 found out the family's journey has inspired a new learning game that is on store shelves right now.

If you had never heard the sound of traffic or a horn honking would you know what you were listening to?

Well one doctor who has professional and personal experience created a game to help children learn to listen

For Jacque Scholl, one of her biggest accomplishments was creating a board game called Crazy Pants. Her biggest inspiration her daughter Jayde.

"Jayde's doing amazing," audiologist Jacque Scholl said. "She became a part of our family the day she saw us."

The first time FOX23 met Jayde was several months ago when Scholl and her husband Eric adopted her from China. She couldn't hear her new parents' voices.

"I didn't really realize how deaf she was," Scholl said.

After having two cochlear implant, what was quiet is now loud and clear

"Now what we are trying to do is to make sense of what she is hearing," Scholl said, "What I realized early on is that there is a huge void for parents who are working on early listening skills of accessible toys and games that they could use."

And so the audiologist created her own

"What I needed was a tool that I knew she could understand and I knew that I couldn't be the only parent in the world who has this problem," Scholl said.

Crazy Pants facilitates learning and language through something all children can relate to getting dressed

"It was designed and centered around the fact so parents could interact with their children," Scholl said.

It's a learning tool that Scholl hopes will teach everyone

"She's pretty amazing," Scholl said.

Crazy Pants is available on store shelves and Scholl tells me that she has two other games in the works
