    School music teacher with a few questions...

    That is INCREDIBLE. Your son sounds like an amazingly perceptive little boy! How neat to be able to feel music like that...I can hear it and I don't think it effects me as much as it must effect him (and you!). I will definitely update on how my student is doing. I am very excited to have him...

    School music teacher with a few questions...

    Hello! This is my first post here and I sincerely hope that it is OK. I am an instrumental music teacher in public schools, and I will have a 4th grade boy with cochlear implants this coming school year. From what I know he signs a bit, lipreads a bit, and has only had implants for a year or so...
