Happy 2nd Birthday Ava!
Ava's big family party will be on Sunday so I will post birthday photos then. In the meantime, Ava just completed her second PLS-4 testing. She is still performing above age level in both auditory comprehension and expressive communication. In fact, because of this, Ava technically would be discharged from auditory verbal therapy. However her therapist felt that because Ava is still so young she would benefit from another six months of AVT. I can't imagine Ava not having the AVT and despite how well she is doing I still don't feel ready for her to give it up yet. So I'm really glad that we are continuing with the weekly AVT sessions until January when she will graduate! (that will make 3 graduations for us - Ava's from AVT, my son's grade 8 and my daughter's grade 12). Ava also recently had soundbooth testing and is hearing at 20 db! She could detect whisper at 10db! I was so amazed and overjoyed at this because I could not detect many of the sounds in the booth (I wear hearing aids) and Ava responded really well to them. So proud of you Ava - you can hear better than mommy and you are profoundly deaf. Still can't get over how AMAZING CI's ARE. THANK YOU GOD!
