In 1999 my son was born deaf - we knew nothing about how to begin this journey. From infancy to age 4 we attended a school in Redwood City called JWPSOD (Jean Weingarten Peninsula Oral School for the Deaf) - this educational foundation has been nothing short of a miracle for our family. Our son is now 9, has 2 cochlear implants that enable him to hear, speak perfectly & read up a storm, play piano beautifully, sing (not so well), talk on the cell phone, and hear a whisper - sometimes he just doesn't know when to be quiet :-)
