Just when I thought girl scout cookies couldn't get any better, you found a way. These are very cute. (I didn't know Juliette Low was hearing impaired. What an interesting fact.)

I took a couple semesters of American Sign Language and it opened my eyes up to Deaf Culture. It is SO interesting! Sadly, since I haven't used sign that much (no one to communicate to) I've forgotten most of it, but I absolutely loved meeting so many people through Silent Dinners and such. I love that you're making it "cool" for her and not something to be ashamed of or embarrassed by. What an awesome Mom you are!!!

Thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday, and especially for raising awareness about sensitivity to the hearing impaired. All the best!

Thanks for making those aware about deafness.

My entire family is deaf and we also wear BTE hearing aids too.

I did want to say-- as a deaf person and having hard of hearing child and a deaf child. The term "hearing impaired" is offensive to many deaf people and hard of hearing. The word impaired implies as broken. Such as if a person can't play the piano-- they would not be called piano impaired.. or those that are not good at baseball - baseball impaired. I thought I would also raise awareness that most deaf do not like being called hearing impaired. And so we try to educate those the correct term is either deaf or hard of hearing. :) Thought I would share that *smile*

My children have that book with Oliver. It is a well written book. I am glad they have it for children getting hearing aids.

Thanks for raising deaf awareness.

Mmmm, what a delicious hearing aid snack you've made! =) Children should learn early on how to make friends with those who have it so that they can understand their struggles and how they can communicate via sign language or through hearing aid.
