It varies each child how they will pick up if they are in bilingual/bi-cultural environment. I think it really helped that Zayden was around my family when we flew to visit twice this year. I know some deaf couples had their kids do fine without early intervention. It just depends. After the speech therapy started, he started signing so much and now he's copying every signs. I have to be careful. I already caught him sign stupid when he saw me sign stupid while I was talking to an adult. Wow he's full of sponge. LOL
