Nolan's favorite song recently has been "Celebration" by Kool and The Gang. Whenever he hears the song on the radio ("celebrate good times-come on!") he'll shout the "COME ON!" part at the top of his lungs. We should turn on the song now, because we have something to celebrate.
I received an email from the school district that Nolan's FM system has been ordered from Phonak. Within minutes, I received a second email stating that the FM system is here. We were pretty sure the FM system wouldn't be ordered in time for preschool, and they managed to get it ordered and in-house within a couple of weeks. I am so glad we live in our particular school district- for all the worry about getting the services and accommodations Nolan needs, they have made everything happen in a very timely manner.
I never thought I'd be so happy over a piece of equipment. Without that little machine, Nolan would only hear a lot of mumbling during circle time. With that little machine, he will hear his teacher read the story, ask questions, and give directions. He'll be able to hear his teacher, even when she's outside of his 5' hearing bubble.
He'll be able to hear the music the other kids are dancing to.
Here's to a whole new world of sound- in the classroom!
