Im in the same boat Well, a quick introduction: My name is Katt, Im 22 years old. Im hearing, and so is my boyfriend he is the father of both my children and the one on the way James is six years old, he has a severe to profound bilateral hearing loss, which is hereditary Ian is six months old, has the same loss, also hereditary, from my boyfriend's side of the family.
Im a signing mom, and strongly encourage a more natural state for children, IE. I am raising my boys in a dhh world, and am steering clear of any kind of oralism or activities that encourage speaking and reading lips. I think it is wonderful that you are choosing this for your son, as eventually in life he will want to and will come into contact with the deaf culture and the people in it.
At first the whole process is very overwhelming, and almost intimidating, but it gets easier and funner as time goes by. Some books that I found very interesting and helpful finding the backround to deaf culture: Disabling the Deaf Community by Harlan L.
Lane All great books. Initially I used these websites to learn sign language, before I got into college classes btw, college classes arent really that helpful when raising a small deaf child Ive been to hell and back on that giant bull of a school district.
You will find as your baby gets older, who truly has his best interests and who is out to make money off of people with "disabilities". First thing is first: Have you applied for SSI? If you dont make much money, but want further help with getting speech therapists, aides, or any other kind of medical assistance with your child, I would contact SSI and get help.
Ill pm you more on this, if you want me too. At this time I am able to spend full time being a sahm and dedicating my time to further educating my children on sign and deaf culture Have you been directed to an Early intervention Parent Advisor? An EIPA will help you find classes and tutors for your family to learn sign together, they will also provide a parent advocate to come to your home and help you with your rights, how the IEP process works, Theres also a life IEP for babies, I forgot what they are called, sorry It depicts your life goals for your child growing, and what you would like to see as of accomplishments within your family and your child's hearing lossalso the EIPA helps with any other questions you have or resources you would like to find in your community support groups for parents of deaf children, play groups, classes Alot of deaf schools also have an early intervention preschool type environment, where parents and children come to interact, before they are legally allowed to join into preschool.
If you are close to a deaf school, call them and find out if they provide this. The most important thing right now is to learn basic signs of your child's daily activities. What I did for little james was take pictures of him doing certain activities.
This allowed him to see the picture of himself, and open up the lines of communication for him and myself for signing to him. He has a picture of him in the bubble bath. You can paste the picture on a posterboard card I usually sized the posterboard 8 by 10 and get them laminated at Kinkos, so that he can hold them and not get grease and other little boy grossies on them.
On the front it had the picture and bold lettering "BATH" then on the back had a picture of a signer signing "BATH" So if I forgot the sign, it would be a quick reference for me and my son.
If you need quick reference sheets to print out, I have them on my computer, I am currently making reference sheets for my neighbor's children, so they can better understand and talk to my son.
I can email them to you to look at.contents 2 20 reasons to visit bath 8 soak up some culture 11 shopping 14 hot spa, cool bath 16 food and drink 20 best of bath in just 24 hours 22 hidden bath 24 the original festival city 26 the.
