Sunday 01/09/91 – A Visit To The Amusement Park


Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress. 

We were visiting family in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Granny and I took the boys to Greenwood Park. They have an electric train, boat rides, cars, trampolines, candy floss and FUN, FUN,FUN!!!


Hughan was talking well today. He loved the train ride and also the pedal cars they also went on the ski-chairs.

Hughan was not at all happy when it was time to go.


(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him.
