We have a 3 year old little boy who is deaf. He has a cochlear implant and was seen by Early Childhood Intervention until he turned 3 then was turned over to our local school system for speech and language therapy, etc. At our Ard meeting it was decided that Josh would go to the local Methodist Day School (DayCare) for interaction with other peers who are hearing, speaking children for therapy for him. He now has 16 month old hearing and is saying some words. I worked very hard with him at home before he got the implant teaching him sign language and after the implant working on verbal speech. He is "HEARING" age appropriate for a 16 month old. The problem is he is becoming very aggressive and beligerant. I attribute it to the Daycare not being able to discipline. He has a 3.5 year old mind, but 16 month old hearing and verbal skills. I think the school is too much stimulation for him and not enough control. I am thinking that maybe for the first couple years of school he just should be home schooled until hopefully his hearing and verbal comprehension and expression catches up with his age. I am an average Mom. I graduated high school in 1977. Can I do homeschooling? I have NO clue where to even begin. If you have any suggestions about getting back to basics on schooling our little boy please give me some advice.
