    Do I have a Processing Disorder or just mild loss?

    Sara, I am experiencing the exact same situation, along with dizziness and roaring/ringing in my ears. Looking for an audiologist who specializes in CAPD........ Seems lie a good place to start. I think low gain aids will be our best bet as far as noninvasive strategies go. Good luck!

    oral death program question

    I said it varied. And yes, some families do seek intensive intervention services. I spent years in EI and saw many kids weekly as did the SLP, SLPA and DI. Three times a week EI services and other days at language groups, private service. That adds up. You seriously need to step back and...

    oral death program question

    Be careful TODtobe! As a veteran TOD (nearly 20 years) I can tell you that not all implants work well for all kids and not all kids tolerate the amplification of being implanted.

    Deaf college for cochlear kid?

    Oral student at Deaf College? I am a teacher of the Deaf and yes, he sounds like he would benefit from being exposed to a missing part of his life. Deaf culture is not replaced by mainstreaming......that void will still exist. BTW, the nuances you spoke of with transposing words and omitting...

    How would I go about starting a Deaf Awarness group in my community?
