That's why I thanked my parents for this.

Both the parents and the schools played an important role. If the parents arent actively involved or the child is missing out in the classroom due to not having a visual language, the risks for language delays increase.
My bf's two Deaf female classmates graduated at the age of 16 from Deaf residental school and one of them has 99 percent perfect in English and she now is a teacher for deaf children at a school in AZ. Both of them comes from strong Deaf family especially their Deaf parents. They're both the same age as I, and they're too brillant women.

Where do you get this? Please don't tell me you found this in a book or something. One thing we've discussed so much on this forum is that there is no one size fits all, that everyone is different. So if a book or some research paper tells you this, you have to take that with a grain of salt. I can say with certainty that just about everyone that is close to me (family, SO, close friends, etc.) became fluent in FAR LESS time, and judging from the posts I've read succeeding yours, others agree. It makes me think that's why you were pooh-pooing the idea of learning sign from books, online, videos, etc. in other threads. Are you thinking it's just too much work for too long to make the effort?

I was thinking about what you said. Maybe that is why I don't want the government and the Assembly to give out brochures to the newly parents of deaf children about CI. What would happen if the child later could not hear with the CI because it does not work? That would mean more money to cut up again and take the non-working device out of the cochlear. With the hearing aids, a parent can change another devices (another brands)? Beside babies and little toddlers are too young and they should enjoy their babyhood into childhood without having the CI. Hearing aid is the best thing. Nobody like having the CI device leave in the cochlear if that does not work at all. How about it, eh?

Then why are you arguing with us? What are you trying to achieve here? You are doing the right thing right now.
I've been wondering that for a while now. I also think FJ is doing the right thing too so I don't get this.
