AVT at play


Today while visiting family I hear Brook in the toy room w/my niece (her first cousin) and I'm thinking...she's practicing her AVT w/Kendall who is hearing. Brook says "now point to three sheeps" as she holds up a book to the three year old. We then hear Brook say "oh you need some hearing aid tape" and she runs to get the double sided tape my mother has in a drawer (for her and Gage) and if you look close at Kendall's ear, you'll see her hearing aid.

That is so precious! Cousins have a special bond like no other. . . and it carries through for a lifetime.

Kids love to play "school" and "teach". . . this certainly is a great way to do A/V therapy!

Deafness runs in your family?

No, that's a fake one, it came w/her real cochlear implant...she sticks it on dolls, people, doesn't matter.

Ahh, that's neat. Other kids can try it out and find it not 'too strange'.
