We went to play group with my friend in the morning. Hughan leads me around everywhere. I help support him walking, and he’s off. He now knows where everything is, and he is very keen to try it all out.

He gets on the swing and has a couple of turns and then he’s off again, wanting to do something else.

Over the weekend we had some friends around and there were 14 children at the house. Hughan joins in very well, playing in the sand pit and joining in with his little friends.

My friends are also interested in Hughan and if they ever asked questions about him we are very open to tell them what we know.

(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
