Hughan is much better, he is still having drops put into his ear, but he is much happier.

In the last week we have played it with Jamie’s train set, Lego, the Duplo set, building bricks and noise making toys. Hughan is still not walking, but he will walk from one chair to another when encouraged.

We feel he is making progress all the time and he sometimes babbles words that sound quite good.

Jamie and Hughan have some lovely games together and Jamie has learnt to play very well with him. He likes to make Hughan aware of noise which is great.

Hughan loves his books and colouring in with Jamie as 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.)
