Amanda's First Musical Keyboarding Experience-Captioned Video Clip
Okay everyone! This is it! A profoundly deaf 14 year old who just 38 days ago (prior to her cochlear implant activation) couldn't hear ANYTHING, and never had, is calling some of the sounds coming from her new electronic keyboard, "weird."
I am stepmother to 15 year-old Amanda. We met when I was her teacher when she 3. She was my student in a class of deaf preschoolers using ASL.
She had been wanting a cochlear implant since she was 10. She finally received a CI, July 14, 2008 at the age of 13 and was activated August 12, 2008 at the age of 14. She is currently hoping to become bilateral and we are working on that process.
