HEARING SCHOOL OF THE SOUTHWEST INC
June 11, 2010
My son, Aiden, was diagnosed with hearing loss when he was 2 years old. After receiving this news I knew as a mom I had to do everything I could to give him the best chance at a normal life as possible. He was fitted with hearing aids and I began seeking out a speech therapist. My son's ENT gave me a name and I called the number. Well it turned out that this speech therapist worked at a school specifically for the deaf and hard of hearing...The Hearing School of the Southwest. I spoke on the phone with the director, Tami, for the better part of an hour. She was so amazing and answered all of my questions and told me all about their amazing program. I was so excited this school was in my home town and they were ready and willing to take Aiden. Aiden began speech therapy and started going to class. When he began his speech was limited to utterances like maaa, maaa, maaa, deee, deee, dee, etc. My son and I were not communicating through spoken words very well. Within that first year he attended HSSW and received therapy he increased his vocabulary immensely. Aiden attended HSSW until he was 3 1/2 and now has well over 500 words and is beginning to speak in sentences and make requests and ask questions. The Hearing School of the Southwest and it's staff are amazing! Thank you for all that you did for my little boy. HSSW IS A GREAT NONPROFIT! :o)
