In the follow-up documentary Sound and Fury: 6 Years later, Heather is now 12 years old, and she, her 2 deaf siblings, her mother and members of her extended deaf family have all opted for the implant device. The article summarizing the documentary's events describes her as having clear speech, living in a 'mainstreamed' world, interacting with hearing people, and earning high grades in school. Heather is depicted as moving between the hearing and Deaf worlds comfortably, and embracing Deaf culture as well as having friends who are hearing.
