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.
I heard some South African music playing on ‘Good Morning South Africa’ TV channel this morning. I knew Hughan was with Grace so I went through to the lounge. Grace was dancing with Hughan which he was really enjoying. I took a photo of them.
We went to our usual play group in the afternoon.
Today I was going to send Vanessa my ‘Diary’ notes -
Vanessa, thank you for the puzzle you gave Hughan. He has played with it every night at bath time since we have been at home.
I have decided to go with the boys to Zimbabwe for 2 weeks. Vil’s school holidays start tomorrow and this is most probably the last chance I have of seeing my old friends before we move to Cape Town. I plan on leaving about the 18th August.
(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.
