|Ready for our first patient!|
The second, a school age boy who has had hearing aids for 2 weeks had problems articulating /s/ /k/ /r/ /z/ and /t/. The team worked with him by isolating the trouble sound in a word, such as 'seal', by running his finger along his arm while saying the /s/ sound for tactile stimulation. As the parents were very attuned to his speech abilities, they were able to give detailed information about his school life as well as progress since he has had his hearing aids.
After a busy morning at the hospital, our team, along with Albert, enjoyed a wonderful lunch while outdoors, learning more from Albert as well as discussing our plans for tomorrow.

We ended the day by going to a local market where fabric, shoes and food (as well as many other items) were sold before heading back to our hotel for dinner and discussion about the day. Tomorrow is sure to bring more rewarding experiences!
