That's basically what I've been telling her. I think learning ASL would be beneficial even if she does decide on the BAHA. Harrisburg has almost no ASL education programs. It's sad. The local community college has a non-credit ASL 1 class. And they are just getting an ASL 2 started this coming spring. She has her kids in early intervention, but that's only for emergent situations. After they start school she will be able to do classes and other things through the intermediate unit in her county...but for now she can't get much assistance. And there really aren't many options as far as learning opportunities in this area.Give them everything!!!! ASL is a great second language for HOH kids.. Doesn't Harrisburg have a Deaf ed program? Basicly tell her to look into everything!
