What I’ve learned from being a mum of a cochlear implant kid

I try not to think of Harry as any different than any other child, but here are 6 things I've learned as a mum of a cochlear implant kid.

In today’s video I am sharing with you some of the things I have learnt from being a mum to a cochlear implant kid!

Obviously, I try not to think of Harry as any different than any other child, but sometimes it’s good to talk about some of the things I’ve noticed as a mum of a deaf child. 

Here are 6 things I’ve learned as a mom of a child with cochlear implants:

  1. The technology is amazing 
  2. People will stare 
  3. There will be critics
  4. Every single child is different
  5. Our family made the right decision for our son
  6. He makes me SO proud
