(Excerpt from the book “Love of Father”)
This book is written by the end of the story that I have never had in the past. For four years, my life and my family were dedicated to our little girl’s future. Then we were less aware that our daughter had a future and no one could predict the result. There was a task that I could never imagine during the hearing and talking to the deaf child. I never imagined that a deaf child could have a completely effective and completely “normal” life, but it was not easy.
At first we were slowly moving forward. But as time passed, we witnessed the amazing progress of our child. About twelve months later, significant changes were made in speech and he started learning new words. First he said two words together, then three, then four. Progress was evident and we knew he would continue to move forward.
The first five years of child life is more important for speech development. This process can not be forgotten and will not start too early. As in my life and about my son, this is one shot deal. Let’s go to my four-five years of life and concentrate on my son, because I have already gone through my life and am grown up. What are four or five years for me? nothing. But for my son it is the most important time all his life. What has been done now for all its inhabitants? During the next two-three years you should not work, you can rest from everything else to make your child grow up to other children of his age and become an ordinary child. This sacrifice should not be paid for only a few years. The author has the desire to help you with any tips or to answer questions about the questions you may have.
When Gabriela was first diagnosed with hearing impairment at the age of 10 months, and at the age of 12 months, I had a lot of fun in my head. The auditor came into the room and said, “You may be bored.” She turned back and said, “I’m very sorry to say that, but your daughter is completely dead.” The tears came and the first questions appeared, my wife asked: “What?” The researcher replied: “After all the frequency of the examination, Gabriela does not understand anything about 90 dB in the low voice.” Then the question N2 – “Have you ever been able to talk?” – “No, no, no. I have a strong drinking apparatus and I will give you a surgeon number that specializes in cochlear implants. And yet, the cost of hearing does not cover your insurance and will cost you $ 2,500. Take a look at my secretary after a week and tasting your son. I wish you a peaceful day. “There was a question again N3 and these questions have not been in the last three years.
Surgery and depiction
The implantation operation takes about two to three hours. The moment of expression can be very emotional. At this time the operation will be successful and how many electrode functions correctly. The auditor accumulates your child’s computer system, and the screen turns out every electrode. Audiologist can adjust voice at all levels with all the electrodes, until the sound is not perfect and your child does not hear it well. Initially, the voice of revealing is something that everyone listens to. The auditor closely watches the computer screen and speaks to the assistant than you are sitting and praying. Electrode N1 – Slightly stimulated, then … Your child will suddenly turn and the auditor says: “It’s good.” Yes, your son perceived the voice of this electrode. This process is repeated repeatedly until all the electrodes are not displayed. Your child will hear you and give you tears of joy. As a rule, there are about three display sessions with two-three-week periods, the amount of which increases each time.
The first few months are activated only in order to be able to listen through the implant. These kids should understand what they understand, and our job is to remember all that. Hearing children “hear” 12 months before they say the first word and our children do not differ from them. The first step is to recognize the sound and the second step of the sound discrimination that will come after the first few months. Maximum should be reduced without noise. I love music and listen to it every day. Over the last four years, I’ve sharply reduced her hearing to reduce background noise. You have to go for some sacrifices, you should divide the day into two parts: the time when you work with your son and the time when you watch TV, listen to music, etc. If the family is engaged in a 24-hour period of seven hours a week, you will need to make some sacrifices so that you have a good “calm” time for your child.
