    Ugh... yesterday we went to a function at Adams school and he was playing in a bouncehouse/maze so I took his HAs off so they didn't get messed up...

    I finally did it... Now, I have questions LOL

    I have decided to take Adam out of his Oral Only school and go the ASL route... (and after he's got a grasp on ASL we'll go Bi-Bi when he starts learning written language) I'm positive I'll get flack from some of the Audist's here but this is what's BEST for MY child-- who has more issues...

    This might be in the wrong spot but thought I'd start here-- since it's a childrens hospital and this is the 'parenting' board :) :) Anyhow-- Adam has an appointment coming up there-- and I'm a little nervous... have any of you taken your children or been a patient there yourself???

    We're back!!

    So took a year 'off' from the boards due to time constraints but we're back!! Adam was legally adopted on 09/17 so it's been nearly a year-- it's hard to believe it's been that long-- he's 2.5 now and learning to sign more (although we get in trouble at school for it :) :) ) and he's talking up...

    Handy Manny and ASL...

    I know this is silly but I got excited the other day when Adam was watching "Handy Manny" on the Disney channel and there was an episode about a gentleman who was deaf!! His wife had to explain to everyone he wasn't ignoring them like they thought he was. And this was the coolest part to me...

    "power aid?"

    Adam went to his Audi yesterday and was tested w/his HA's and w/out them... and we're getting a near 'normal' hearing range w/his right aid (Oticon Vigo Pro) but he's still profound w/his left... so his Audi mentioned maybe trying him on a "Power Aid"?? He's profoundly deaf so what will this...

    Offensive??

    I'm just wondering from a hearing mom's perspective-- Does anyone find the term "hearing impaired" offensive when they're deaf or Hoh?? I have referred to Adam that way b/c that's how the doctor referred to him-- not 'deaf'. It's silly but I saw a T-shirt online that said "I'm deaf- not...
