Today our friends made sure that Macella & Kirstie made it to school and we left for NYC at 6:30am. We parked in NJ and took the train into the city and a cab to the Audiologist. Today Maria's devices were turned up and more frequencies were added. It was quite amazing to watch her react to the sound of "sh". It completely scared her. She did not like the "s" sound either. It made us feel horrible that the way you would normally calm a child by saying "SHHH" did not work with Maria, but bothered her even more.
Again we were given four different programs to take Maria through with an increase of approximately one program per week. This time Maria appears to be displaying even more upsetting behaviors with her anxiety.
