We feel the course is doing so much not only as a confidence building exercise but also learning the maintenance of motor cars, mixing so much with the hearing world which is where his future will be.
The great advantage of this course is he has sign support with a communication specialist which I have to say makes it all possible for our son to keep up with the group, the communication specialist is so dedicated to her job along with many people in her profession understanding the deaf, being interested in the people who they are there to help.I wish he had been able to have this service earlier in his life.
You have a real gem with my son’s communication specialist, she keeps us informed with what is going on in the class room and we can see the progress our son is making in all aspects of his time at Northbrook.
A big thank you for making all this possible.
