"It would be really wonderfull if B.A.B can supply teddy hearing aids in the uk, it would help alot of children and encourage them to wear there hearing Aids as teddy will be wearing his/hers to, i know my 7 year old would be made up if they was available in the uk, and it helps to spread awarness of deafness and hearing Aids to children in a lovely way."
"Its totally necessary for deaf kids to have positive images of deafness in any form! if when a kid gets aids or an implant then they might not know anyone else with them. if their bear has hearing aids too and is maybe given them at the same time it will make it easier!"Parents have also asked for Bone Anchored Hearing Aids and Cochlear Implants...
These parents are right, it is so important for deaf children to have something they can identify to that will encourage them to see their deafness as a positive thing. Having a best friend bear with hearing aids might encourage younger children to wear their hearing aids.
