Whew, it’s been a while.

Here’s some recommendations for reading:

– 3-Year-Old Making Progress After Auditory Brainstem Implant. Update on the amazing procedure performed at UNC (the first in the US: youtube.com/watch?v=GhC_By9GMv0) to give access to hearing to a child born without an auditory nerve.  This may be my favorite clip of this now-famous family that’s out there! There’s also a lovely shoutout to AVTs: youtube.com/watch?v=1bCoFHcFd4M

– Reading at Five: Why?

There is nothing developmentally wrong with the children. It is the expectations that are not developmentally appropriate.” seenmagazine.us/articles/article-detail/articleid/3238/reading-at-five-why

– Why Waking Up Is Hard to Do. This one is for Bryan – there’s apparently a genetic reason for why some need more sleep than others. www.futurity.org/why-waking-up-is-hard-to-do
