Danny is deaf, diagnosed with a profound bilateral loss. He received cochlear implants in January that were activated February 16. Since he is so young, he still receives benefits in the home through one of our local deaf schools; our therapist comes in once a week for an hour long session, plus we are still going in monthly for audiology.
my son is not deaf but he is delayed in speach. We just had his two assessment sessions and are waiting for his results. I have an apointment on the 16th and from there the therapy sessions will be planned. Benefits only cover up to so much for it so I am hopping CHEO will come through for us this summer and cover some sessions since they were so slow getting the assessment apointment set up. Had to go the private route for now.
We see our speech therapist once a week and have for over 3 years now with no end in sight. we are not deaf but have apraxia and other non concrete diagnosis that have put us severely delayed. In the fall he will also get an additional minimum 30 mins a week in his special ed preschool
Our little guy hasn't been formally diagnosed but the therapist thinks it's probably apraxia - we only go once every 2 weeks because of the cost (athough my insurance sort of covers it, it's like a bank account so we still have to watch it).
Vocabulary wise, he's doing awesome. It's just the pronounciation we have to work hard on. He's at least making understandable efforts for words, which is a new thing for him, so it's good progress...
Greyson sees a speech therapist during the school year, three times a week for 30 minutes. He has Sensory-neural hearing loss and is 80% deaf in his right ear. He sees a speech therapist b/c he mispronounces the /r/ sound as /w/. They don't believe that it has to do with his hearing loss, though.
