8 'Top Tips' for working with your deaf child (free to access).
Here's access to our TOP TIPS for you to start working with your deaf child today. These TOP TIPS are the 'secret' to our success.
When I turned 50, I wanted to write down what I had done to help our profoundly deaf son, Hughan, with his lip-reading and communication skills, in case another member of our family has a deaf child in the future. When I started reading our 'Diary' notes, I realised there was a lot of information there, that I could share with other parents, to help them through our experience.
In 1990, by implementing these TOP TIPS into our daily lives, and with consistent, persistent effort over a long period of time and never giving up, have proved to be life changing for our son.
In 1989 we became aware he couldn't hear us when he was 9 months old. It took 5 agonizing months to get him diagnosed profoundly deaf. One Specialist even told us he wouldn't benefit from hearing aids. Today, Hughan is in his 30's and has achieved so much with his hearing and speech, that he can even hold a conversation on a phone.
