Upcoming Activation Day!

Our youngest son just had his cochlear implant surgery two days after Christmas. His activation day is Monday! He is so eager to talk! It is going to be fascinating to have him hear and begin to understand the spoken word and to begin to talk (understandably), himself as time goes on. The main thing, communication will be so much better and help him in so many ways. As he is immersed in spoken language day in and day out, and will have Audio Verbal Therapy (AVT) weekly, along with associated home activities, we plan to continue with the sign that he already knows and use cued speech as a bridge to spoken language as he is already excited about it. I wish someone had a pre-formed curriculum for all of these language needs with a super-hero format and it would be ideal for my little super-guy!
