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.
Dear Vanessa (I was starting my next lot of ‘Diary’ notes that I would be sending to Vanessa
I decided to go to ‘Sefalane’ which is a big Wholesale Store. I took Hughan with me. He sat in the trolley and enjoyed being pushed about. I bought him a match box truck.
His eye contact is good and he is looking at me all the time for language.
Vil finished school early (last day of the school term).
(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. Please visit our page…’like’ and follow us to help others…Thank you :) )
