Logan has been chosen to participate in a a federally funded research that is conducted at the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He will be tested in order to gain more insight into the benefits of bilateral implantation vs. a single ear implant . He is scheduled to travel to Madison in about two weeks.
When I heard of the opportunity for him to take part in this, I jumped at the chance because their first study on bilateral implants is what helped my husband and I decide to go forward with getting a second CI for Logan.
They sent us some pictures for Logan to become familiar with to get ready for some of the testing they will be conducting. Out of 24 pictures, I was concerned that he only knew 7 of them--but in only 2 days he has mastered all 24. We made flashcards out of them and have developed different games to help him understand and say the different words.
Tonight we had him choose a card and draw the picture on the driveway with sidewalk chalk...
