Video reference 6 months post activation first cochlear Implant.

With Norah’s upcoming CI surgery on the 26th I am making this video as a reference to how far Norah has come with her signing, hearing, and speaking and so I can see how far she comes 6 months after her second CI activation, and compare videos. We have never had her try to pick items by there name (only by the sound they make like dog is woof woof, or the ling sounds) so I did not know how she would do, I am happy with the results and look forward to seeing how she dues 6 months after her next CI activation.

Glen, I watched this with so many emotions. It took me back to when we first started out with Jazzie on this journey. The signing was her main way of communication for so long; I didn't think she was ever going to talk. Seeing Norah struggle to understand spoken words is also very familiar. For so long Jazzie needed a sign to go with the word. Watching you work with her reminds me of my own time working with Jazzie and I remember the dedication that that takes, so I want to commend you on that.
However, watching this also makes me sad for you and Norah because you don't have a school like Ohio Valley Voices near you.

But once again I want to compliment you on everything you are doing with Norah. I have been there, done that and I promise you that there will come a day when all of a sudden things will "click" for her.

Great job Glenn!! I got tickled when you said spoon to her. Her eyes went right to the spoon and then she pointed at the other object!! She's a little spitfire! I'm still learning the lessons you sent but actually watching you sign helps out too!

Norah is beautiful and I can't wait to see her blossom even more.
Thanks for sharing.
