Today Hughan and I played with the play dough. He liked the feel of it because it was cold to touch (as it had been in the fridge).

We talked about rolling the dough out on the board and patting it and pressing the moulds into it, making different shapes.

Jamie had a swimming lesson in the afternoon at school, which is very close to where we live, so we had a walk down to the school and played with the brothers and sisters of the children in their lesson. He had a great time.

He is still not walking by himself, but instead holds onto my finger for some support and off he goes!!

(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.)
