On Tuesday night a very patient doctor came to our home to perform an ABR / BAER Test on our sleeping George. Sadly Georgie woke up just as everything had been set up and there won’t be a second chance to do the test during sleep. The next time it will have to be performed under general anaesthetic, and I am one worried Mama.
We have been using American Sign Language (due to far more resources and ways to learn compared to BSL) with George and he has recently started to sign “more“.
While George’s speech isn’t improving I am so happy to see him improve in so many other ways, today he helped me put clothes into the washing machine and even turned it on, too.
I hope the ABR test will give us some ideas about how to progress, and no matter the result it would be good to know whether George has any hearing at all. I must admit that at this point we are all hoping that he is at least a little bit deaf, because it sure would explain a lot of things!
If your child has had a BAER test I would absolutely love to hear from you, and uplifting words are always welcome,too!
Have a lovely day!
P.S. Thank you to the kind people over at Toca Boca for sending George his new favourite shirt!
