First lets start by saying all children are special and all have needs that are special. just some require more help along the way.
I was first told of my dd failed her newborn hearing screening when she was two days old. i held her as the repeated the test and got the same results. Miss Olivia was one month ond when we were told she had a mild/moderate hearing loss. After repeating the ABR getting second opinions and changing doctors I felt we would recive better care and info at Children Hospital in Boston Nothing but the best! She recived her hearing aids at 4 months old and is doing great. She had a sedated abr at 8 months and now does the behavorial test in the both every 3-4 months. We go every six for hearing aid molds and she has speach every week. Miss Olivia also had tightness in her hands feet and neck she is recovered from that we had our last OT appointment last week she will be by in a few months to check on us but No more OT!! My ds who is 2/12 hit all hisa speach mildstones early first word at 10 months and a bunch of single words by 18 months. as he but more and more words together he was harder to understand I talked with DD OT she said to call and have an eval. done he now has speech everyweek Cam had his hearing tested and he does have a mild loss. no aides are needed right now. More tests to come!
We are all learing ALS and all about hearing aids. Granma just got one too!! We should find out more soon as to if there loss will be progressive or stay the same. We take each day at a time and are thankfully we are trully blessed by the Lord. For he gives me the strenght.
