Review for Spokane Hearing Oral Program of Excellence (HOPE), Spokane, WA, USA
Our son was a happy baby, but we could tell by age one that his speech was severely delayed. We tested him and learned that he had a profound Unilateral Hearing Loss (UHL) in one ear. He began attending HOPE School in Fall of 2004 at age 2, and by Fall of 2006, he was easily mainstreamed into a private pre-school. Thanks to the staff's diligent efforts in working with our son, not to mention the help of his good friends (a cochlear implant student, a model hearing student with a hearing impaired baby brother and their families), our son transitioned to regular school and has thrived ever since! He is about to graduate from Jr. High and will be a freshman in High School next academic year. He has great grades, does live theatre including musicals, plays basketball and golf, and is genuinely the most communicative, funny person you will ever meet, thanks to his excellent education from HOPE School!
