Good Reports!

We went to see the audiologist again yesterday. I was a little discouraged because Ellie was still only on the 1st program. But we did a hearing test, and it showed that Ellie is hearing as low as 20 dB. So technically, she could hear a whisper where she is at now. Darcy wrote on the audiogram, "Responses to narrowband noise in the sound field are in the borderline normal to mild hearing loss range at 500-4000 Hz." Wow! Borderline normal! Yay! So now, we are working on short "stuttering" noises versus long noises--trying to get her to copy us. :) Here is a video of Ellie responding to her name!
