My 2 mo DS was just officially diagnosed with mild to moderate.

DO NOT go into your child's IEP meeting thinking that you are going to have to purchase assistive devices. If the IEP team, which includes you, determines that he needs an assistive listening device (FM system) in order to access his educational program, the school district will need to provide it and maintain it. Please be sure to talk to your school district's special education director or deaf education coordinator. School districts are required, by law, to provide assistive technology, as needed, for students with disabilities -- this includes FMs -- whether the child is in a completely inclusive setting or in a special separate class.
