Hi, My daughter is 11. We found out about a year agao why my daughter failed all her hearing tests at school. Found out she is loosing her hearing due to a genetic mutation and there is NO cure..It seems to be sinking in slowly and I am finding it hard to know how to support her with these new fears for her future. Although she is very populare, straight A student, she find it hard to fir in with the hearing kids as well as the deaf kids because. The deaf children have never heard so are fluent in signing, the hearing kids talk but she often has to ask them to repeat what they said and look at her so she can read their lips. It just seems a cruel joke for her to have heard and then to slowly but surely loose it someday compleatly. Is there anyone out there that is going through the same thing?
