First Day of Pre-School
Maggie was able to get in our local public school pre-school program and we love it ! We love that Maggie will have a speech therapist right there at her school. We also love that she will get a head start on reading, which is very important to children with hearing impairment. The statistics show that hearing impaired children struggle with reading/comprehension and early intervention is key to success. Thankfully, Maggie loves books and would choose reading a book over playing with toys. I believe it has been a combination of her love of books and her early intervention with speech and the bone anchored hearing aid that has helped her so much. Maggie is already reading easy words like CAT, HAT, DOG, FOOT, HOP, MOM and DAD !!! She sounds words out and knows all her letters/sounds. The other day she said "bank starts with b" when we were at the bank. I can't wait to see what she will be doing after a year of pre-school !!!
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
