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, knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone, so she could track Hughan’s progress.
This morning Hughan was sitting playing with his Duplo (Lego) in the lounge. I went to join him.
I asked him for several things and he looked for each and showed great excitement and then gave them to me.
The cow, the sheep, pig, horse, aeroplane (he has a big one and a small one) and a car.
For each one he made actions and the sound. We built and had great fun.
(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 :) )
