Silveston and his wife were blessed with their twin girls, Maiya and Jaimee, in 2006. Maiya was born with ‘Mondini dysplasia,’ a condition which causes severe hearing loss. When she was just six months old, she was diagnosed with ‘Enlarged Vestibular Aqueducts’ (EVA). The twin sisters have developed a unique sign language, which allows them to communicate with ease. Despite her condition, Maiya attends a mainstream school as she is an expert lip-reader. Both Silveston and Simons decided to learn sign language when Maiya was six years old. When she was 12, her parents got her a pair of cochlear implants which has improved her hearing.
