SStone Posted June 22, 2021 Report Share Posted June 22, 2021 Hello! My name is Stephanie and I am a parent of a 6 1/2 yo born with SSD due to ANSD (Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder). My son is supposed to have his surgery next Monday, the 28th. My husband and I have been on and off the fence about having this procedure done. Right now we're heavily leaning for it, but we're worried that he will not learn to "hear" and understand the context of speech, and no one can give us any answers. All we hear is "he may learn to understand speech if he is a good user of his processor." I understand that EVERYONE is different and their journeys are different, but I'm wondering if there are any other parents of kiddos like ours that has ANSD and a CI? If so, what are/were you experiences thus far? ANY info or advice is much appreciated!!!! I am a 1st grade teacher as well, so ANYTHING I/we can do to better help him and prepare him for school will be a plus as well! THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!! 🤗 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
