Jamie has a desk and chair in the playroom. Hughan sat on one side and I sat the other (facing the light).
Jamie has a case full of Lego. Part of the Lego set is a rabbit and a playground set, including a roundabout with an umbrella, swing, trees, flowers, a Park bench and stepping stones.
The rabbit sat on the swing and went round on the merry-go-round and sat on the bench.
I made a house for the rabbit. Building the house was fun – opening and closing the door and windows – playing “I can see you”.
It was all great fun and I felt we had gone through quite a lot today and he was listening very well.
(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.)
