Next week will be 1 year since we discovered that Syd’s hearing issue could not be fixed with surgery. Since then, we have watched her blossom because of the BAHA that she wears.
Every once in a while someone else in the house puts it on and tests it out. I’m all for any of the kids wearing it to gain perspective on how it works and lets their sister hear. It also lets them see the limitations that Syd faces as the BAHA does not give her perfect hearing.
The consensus: The loudest sound at the moment is the one she hears and she doesn’t have a good sense of which direction it comes from. That said, we’re grateful for the help it does provide and for the effort Syd has put into wearing it.
