Elijah performing on stage

This is Elijah performing at the Plano Regional Day School for the Deaf annual show. The video is not the greatest and I jostle the camera some, and you can't see his whole body. However, you can hear him very well. I am wearing the microphone that goes with his FM receivers on his cochlear implants, so he can hear. You can hear me telling him to slow down and NOT to play with the microphone. HE LOVES the microphone!

The theme of the show was MOVIES and Elijah is talking about his favorite movie--Garfield--A Tail of Two Kitties. He had a power point he was reading from. His deaf ed. itinerant teacher had helped him with it!

The biggest accomplishmet is that he was able to walk out there and perform with no problem. Meaning he didn't misbehave!!
