Re: I need some help - DD may have hearing loss

DS ate my post...
Anyway, the short version is that I think you'll find hearing loss much easier to navigate than autism. It has more of a protocol and once you are in the BC Hearing Program things will likely just tick along.

Here is my favourite video ever. It's a neighbour girls getting her hearing aids as a preschooler. She can hear somewhat but was missing a lot of sounds (which is why her speech is 'off' in the video). She does great now and her speech is perfect. When she's in large groups she gives the teacher/guide leader an amplifier so we can talk right into her hearing aids (a tool I wish I had for ALL kids!!!)
