Our son, Ayden, has mild to severe hearing loss in both ears that was identified at birth. When he turned three, he received an IEP plan (Individualized Education Plan). For Ayden to be successful in an inclusive classroom he needed a number of vital pieces. An inclusive classroom has both mainstream students and students with IEP’s. Included in his IEP plan were two essential pieces: The Roger FM transmitter, and a Hearing Itinerant.
There comes a stage for most of us when we have our hearing aids and we begin the slow process of learning to live with them and with our hearing loss. All too often this is a time of isolation. Even those who have loving supportive family and friends can still feel very much on their own during this often worrying time, during the hearing loss journey.
