DD1 is deaf, we chose to go with oral language and she had cochlear implants. Up til a year, lots of signing and therapy. Once we got the implants we went 2 days a week to an oral language program until she was old enough for half days (2) and full days (3). It involves constantly integrating aural rehab into daily life. It was HARD as an infant. If she couldn't see us she thought she was alone. We couldn't call out to her. She always had to have line of sight, and needed skin to skin contact to go to sleep. As a toddler we had to be RIGHT THERE. There was no way to get her attention without line of sight or physical contact. If she ran in the street yelling no did nothing. So it was kind of outside induced helicopter parenting
