We spent the morning at play school with my friend. Hughan had a great time on the motorbikes and bicycles.

He is joining in well with the children. Today I lifted him up so he could feel the vibrations from the music on the speaker.

He is often pointing to his ear and shaking his head when he hears a sound.

Today I mentioned to Willem that he had said something that sounded like ‘mam!’, and Willem said he had thought he had said ‘tea’ when he saw his bottle – he is still babbling 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.)
