Every day 

I set off for school with my cochlear implant (CI) and my hearing aid (HA) working. 

Every day 

I take a kit with spare batteries, CI cable and "Roger". Roger is my best friend. Every teacher wears Roger and he 'beams' the wearer's voice right to my ears. 

Most days 

I have no issues with my ear gear and Roger stays the course. When my devices are working and Roger is "on it"  I hear 80% of everything you say to me even in a noisy space. In a quiet space I will hear everything.

Some days

my devices pull stunts and either don't work well or do an 'epic fail'. Its hard for me to notice because its really subtle. Nothing beeps or flashes. It just fades out. I can't tell but you can.

Some days

I don't answer when you speak to me or I am distracted or ready to distract others. Ok, sometimes it is me pulling a stunt, but a lot of the time it is Roger (or one of the other devices) not doing their jobs.

Every day

you can do a sound check when I come into your class. Ask me something  when Roger is with you. Roger tells me everything you say. Unless you tell him to shoosh. Hit "Mute" to shoosh him up.

Every day

we can remind each other to mute/un-mute Roger and to place Roger on the table for group time. Roger hates being left out when I am working with friends. If Roger is on the table, laid out flat, I will hear most of what my friends say.

Every day

you can encourage my friends to speak up and to turn to face us when they want to say something we are all meant to hear. It's practically impossible for me to hear what my friend says to you when I am behind him or her. I am learning how to let others know this.
