Our daughter lost a good portion of her hearing at 11 months to Meningitis. Profoundly deaf in one ear, about 50% hearing in the other. It was diagnosed almost immediately and we got great help from Arizona services for the deaf in her preschool years. People are amazed at how well she is able to lipread and speak. She is about to get a double major in Special Ed and El Ed. Of our three children, she was the most receptive to homeschooling and worked so hard to learn all the things we just hear the first time. Those struggling with special needs children, I hope this is an encouragement to you.

I would like to add as a deaf/hoh mom who grew up with hearing lost, I worked hard and went to college and then on to grad. school and have a Masters. I now homeschool my children who are both hard of hearing. They too are doing well and whatever they decide to do with their lives will be met with encouragement and praise.

Homeschooling is what has helped my children the most, the schools here would just put them in a ESE class for slow learners when they are not even slow learners. They really love learning here at home.

No mater the special need of your child, they can learn anything if given the time and opportunity to learn.
