Now Hear This! What If You Were Deaf?

Nickelodeon has a show tonight called “Now Hear This! What if You Were Deaf?

It’s a premiere of their show Nick News with Linda Ellerbee.  There will be kids who have cochlear implants and/or hearing aids.  There will be kids who communicate with ASL and/or spoken language.

Unfortunately we don’t have cable but maybe we can view it another way after it airs.  It’s at 8 pm (EST) on August 5th (tonight) on Nickelodeon.

If anyone catches it, let us know how it is!  I’d be interested to hear!

    Thanks for posting this, Eliza! I really enjoyed this and shared it with the other therapists at AVC. I liked the variety of outcomes they showed….and I especially loved that they mentioned that adjusting to sound with an implant takes time and therapy, which is typically not mentioned in mainstream media coverage related to CI’s.

      Thanks Lauren! I thought they did a great job. I loved watching the kids in their schools and seeing how their day to day was like. I am so amazed with kids and adults who are deaf or hard of hearing. Not just because of Fiona but because everyone’s story is so unique, special and incredible!
