Speech for Deaf Children
Finding out our son was profoundly deaf on the 13th October 1989 was devastating. It took us 5 months, from when we thought Hughan had a hearing problem, to get his diagnosis. He was 14 months old when he had his hearing test and I can remember during the test crying so much, because I knew he could not hear us and the results were not going to be good. I didn't understand what profoundly deaf meant and just wanted to do everything in my power to help our son. The first thing that came to mind was that one day I wanted him to be able to leave home and lead a normal life on his own.
