ANJELY GETS A HEARING AID- A young sweet girl named Anjely had been struggling in the classroom and was suspected of having apraxia and difficulties with learning. We were specifically asked to evaluate Anjely and explore ways that the special education teacher can support her learning. Upon meeting Anjely and further assessment we realized that Anjely’s learning disabilities may not be due to apraxia or learning difficulties, but in fact may be due to hearing loss. This came as a surprise to the teachers since Anjely, in all of her wisdom, had figured out ways to communicate and appeared to hear things that were spoken to her. After looking at the recent hearing assessment and realizing that there was significant hearing loss, we discovered that Anjely was nearly deaf. She was most likely born with normal hearing, but after a trauma, she lost her ability to hear speech and even most ambient noises of her environment. Emily, GOT Ministries’ Occupational Therapy student, was able to get GOT connected with her sister who is an Audiologist. Name of audiologist helped us figure out what the best way to help Anjely would be. After realizing that hearing aids would be the most beneficial strategy, GOT and Emily’s sister connected with a team of ENT specialists coming from Kansas City to serve and provide hearing aids the day GOT was returning home. Through this amazing connection and the proactive nature of the service providers of GOT Ministries, we were able to connect Anjely with the resource she needed to be successful in the classroom. She was provided a brand new hearing aid and has been working on her sign language since GOT was in Guatemala.
