Micro preemies?
I have a 28 weeker who is now 5m act 2m adj. He has severe hearing loss. Any other mamas out there that can relate?

DD1 is hearing impaired. There are many options. We use some sign, but got cochlear implants and do primarily oral language. Cochlear Implants are not approved until 1 year, so Id start learning and using American Sign Language immediately either way. Feel free to PM me with questions. Find an Early Intervention Program that specializes in hearing loss, and a good ENT and Audiologists with pediatric experience.

There's also an early arrivals section that may be able to relate to a lot of what you are going through/have gone through.

Hope your little guy does great!

I'm deaf and there's more options than ASL and oral. PM me for more info or post here :)

Re: Micro preemies?
We go back for repeat abr next month. We have an awesome ent and I'm not too keen on the hearing place, but trying a new one in march. We do have a day program I found at st. Mary's school for the deaf. ENT said risks outweigh benefits with the germ factor. lil man cant do daycare fore the same reason. I had to quit work to stay with him... What are other options?? I would love to be well educated and not forced into something..
