We can then examined the ABILITIES that we do have, and then by adding the prefix P-O-S-S and changing the A to I the word becomes POSSIBILI- TIES, we then can focus on this to help us lead a fulfilled productive life. So we can ask ourselves today, where is our focus? What prefix are we adding to the front of our ABILITIES? Merv Daniels, HLAA Orlando Chapter !

HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA, FLORIDA STATE ASSOCIATION ISSUE NO. 40! JULY/AUGUST 2013 We welcomed Dr. Drew Horlbeck on Tuesday, June 18 as our guest speaker. He was introduced by Catherine Swanson, a speech language pathologist, our contact and friend at Nemours Children’s Clinic. HLAA- Jacksonville members appreciate all she does for us. Dr. Horlbeck came out of the Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel where he treated both adults and children. He now focuses on pediatrics. He went on to tell the amusing story of how he joined the Infantry, then went to the University of Illinois still owing time to the Army, ended up in the Air Force, attended medical school AV-Med Cal, Johns Hopkins, and University of California. He said only in America can you start in the Infantry and end up at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Horlbeck reported that 40 cochlear implants have been done so far this year, more than is normal. He spends about 25% of his time at the new medical center in Orlando. Patients come from Savannah to Vero Beach, as well as from the west coast of Florida, Naples and Tampa. He went on to explain the process beginning with newborn hearing screening. In this country, 33 babies are born with hearing loss every day, the majority of them to hearing parents. To function in a hearing society, the children will need specialized education, social services and other resources. The goal, at Nemours, which is explained to every parent, is that every child child be mainstreamed by first grade. If the child is older when implanted, however, expectations must be realistic. After listening to the doctor and seeing his PowerPoint, members left the meeting having had an excellent overview of the services offered by Nemours. At every meeting - the third Tuesday of the month except July, August and December, we have speakers who present on hearing loss subjects. Please join us. You won’t be sorry you attended. Most of us are hard of hearing and have much experience and many ideas to help you live better with hearing loss.
