@helenfrances Your son, like my daughter, was overlooked and thought to be less intelligent than they were, due to their hearing. There were a few things that she should have been part of but she was overlooked because her hearing loss tended to make her quieter in class so that quietness was mistaken for not being as intelligent as she is.
I kick myself for not advocating better for her when she was in middle school and HS, but it is what it is and she has done well.
I forgot !! To tell you that my husband had a burst ear drum!.from the accident.. hearing loss!
His ear was repaired many years later when it became infected.
A piece of his skin was used to cover the hole in his ear drum!
His hearing is MUCH improved but not 100%
