About this product
- DescriptionDeaf at age six, Blatchford was educated with speech lessons, speech reading, and hearing aids. At the age of 62 she underwent a cochlear implantation. In this memoir she describes living with a cochlear implant, including her realization that amplification and comprehension are t the same. Gradually the soup of sound she heard at first gave way to a selective hearing of sentences. When asked by other deaf people if they should receive an implant, she cautions that it is an individual decision.
- Author BiographyClaire Blatchford has taught writing and arts and crafts for more than a quarter century to deaf children in public kindergarten, elementary, and middle school classes through the Clarke Mainstream Services Department of the Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, in Northampton, Massachusetts, USA.
