We talked about a general plan to help Raphael develop his hearing skills and came away from the session with a few things to do:
- Speak in sentences but emphasizing the key word to him, trying to include it in a sentence fifteen times if possible.
- Start communication with Raphael by vocalising before adding sign language. The idea is not to deprive Raphael from understanding by sign language, but rather to encourage him to use his hearing for communication as well as his vision.
- Continue to repeat back vocalisations to Raphael
