Gidion - PART2
(Hearing impairment)

« At the end of Grade 1 Gidion received the certificate for the pupil who showed the most progress »


Remember Gidion? This little kid has to face many challenges every single day. As her mum, Tushka, says: "Gidion is a warrior of God".
Read his full story and experience with Forbrain with PART 1 here.


Gidion, warrior of God… And now Gidion is 8 years old. He has passed grade R (pre-school) and Grade 1 with flying colours. Due to Gidion’s hearing impairment as a result of his genetic disorder, Fanconi Anemia, Gidion’s occupational therapist suggested that we use the forbrain for certain periods of time while he is getting focused schooling. He has been using the forbrain since Grade R and we have never looked back.

I will never forget his face when he put the forbrain on for the first time and said to me “Mommy, I can hear my own voice!” with his eyes and face all lit up. Since Grade 1 he hasn’t had any occupational therapy and we relied on the forbrain alone for focused attention and increased hearing ability. At the end of Grade 1 Gidion received the certificate for the pupil who showed the most progress in Grade 1. I don’t think there is a prouder mom alive! Currently he uses the forbrain during school time, and only takes it off during break and at home.

Thank you, thank you, thank you… that is all I can say. And the words are so small compared to the influence you have had on Gidion’s life. The support and assistance I have received from the people of Forbrain equals none I’ve ever had before. You have made a priceless contribution to my son’s quality of life.
