Hi , My name is Lori and I am the mother of a seven yr old boy with mild to profound sensorineural bilateral hearing loss. My son wears hearing aids and the school supplis am FM system. I have been told that he would benefit greatly with a Teacher of the Deaf. He is very bright but struggling terribly with attention and has severe speech delay. I believe he is pegged as a 3 yr old. He can definately understand but really struggles with expressive language. Any body have any ideas for getting the proper help in and out of the school? He was born with normal hearing but had a bonemarrow transplant at 6 mnts. The meds damaged the nerves in his ears over time so he has only been aided for about 2 years, and he cant always wear them due to ear infections. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks so much.......
