Being born deaf is one of the most difficult things to deal with, especially for parents. We live in a world that it is designed for people who can hear. Most parents take the news very well. For them, it is not about how they feel about things, but how they can make their child feel the same as everyone. For most children, they need to undergo a variety of hearing tests. These are aimed at testing the range in frequencies they can listen, and coming up with the right ear-implant to help them.
It goes without saying that children who have this condition often grow up being alone. Unless they are placed in special classes, some of them will have a tough time making friends. To make up for this, parents often spend a substantial amount of time playing with their children. This strengthens their bond with them and gives their children that extra boost of confidence they need at this difficult stage.
The most important aspect of a child’s growth is learning. Many schools have several programs implemented aimed at helping kids with disabilities. Consistency is key at this point and the more the parents are involved, the better the child will do. Once the child is doing good at school, the parents might want to take care of the other aspects of their child’s development.
According to many psychologists, playing is a very important part of a child’s development. Since finding friends is something that tends to get a little difficult, parents often think of getting a dog. But, what kind of dog do you get for a child with this type of disability? What breed is the best? I have heard that there are breeds that show more empathy and understanding than others. One of these breeds is the golden retriever. This is one of the reasons that it is widely used as a service dog for people who are blind.
Other popular breeds are the German Shepperd. Its elevated level of intelligence makes him an ideal candidate for understanding the shortcomings of any owner and react accordingly. Julia’s mother looks at these but is not sure about them. She prefers to visit her local shelter looking to see if she can get a pup who can be the perfect fit for her daughter.
She starts to lose hope until she meets Walter. Walter is a small dog full of energy and patience. The minute Julia’s mother sees him she knows in her heart this is the right dog for her daughter. She fills out all the paperwork and heads home with the new puppy. She surprises her daughter with the puppy and her daughter’s eyes open wide. She is so happy with her new pup! This pup was specially chosen for one reason. Do you want to know why?
