Zach also had a miracle!
He was legally deaf up until 4th grade. I would take him for testing and they would put him in a sound proof booth and play sounds and he would hear them.
Finally, I did some research and heard about CAPD. So, we had him tested w/o a sound proof booth and it was determined he was legally deaf!
Michaela volunteered to go to public school for a year (when she should've been in 1st grade). The school tested her (because I wanted her placed into second) and she tested into 5th. So, we put her in 3rd. (And, that was an amazing year. A lot of wonderful things happened, though they were difficult at the time).
Kyle and I took turns giving Zach therapy from October thru to the spring. At the end of it all, Zach was retested: NORMAL HEARING!
Unfortunately, boys who don't have hearing during a certain, early developmental stage will struggle with language acquisition. However, Zach has done remarkably well and is in a Christian art school in Australia. And THAT is a miracle!
