I am So Excited! Yesterday, my son came home from school telling me all about the new headset he got at school. See, he has moderate hearing loss in one ear, Sensory Seeking, ADHD and is on the Spectrum. Unfortunately, a hearing aid does not work for him for him, as he it would only amplify the white noise there. So his school has been using headphones, to block out ambient noise while amplifying the teacher, and putting the teacher on a microphone since he started kindergarten. But he kept chewing the cords up. Last year, he had a male teacher who's voice boomed enough he didn't really need to buy a new set after he ate the cord. But this fall, in 5th grade, he was having more trouble focusing since last year, and his teacher is female. After talking to him over Break, he wished there was a bluetooth headset so that he could still amplify, but cordless. I happen to mention this to the special needs teacher, as more of an idea or dream. I didn't think something like this actually existed. But not only does it exist, but they managed to get it for him! My son was so excited, he actually can't wait to try it out again today! I'm so Thankful for Brown Elementary!
