Turning 5 next month, she's been at a bi-bi school for the deaf for more than 2 years, spending part of each day in an acoustic access class of peers (a handful of children with CIs), with roughly half of each day spent voices-off in an ASL immersive environment with a broader set of deaf peers and instructors. She's bilingual, ASL was her primary language, she uses either English or ASL depending upon her environment/the language of those she's interacting with.
