Nathan has much to learn as he "catches up" on language and communication. It can be daunting at times. I'm sure it frustrates him as well. Everything must be taught...nothing is learned by just "overhearing" for a Deaf child. Think about it...Nathan is learning English, sign language, social skills that are different from the first 6 years of his life, how to fit in a family...the list goes on and on. It can be down right exhausting and a lot to expect from anyone. My goal is to make learning fun...in essence to "play games". This includes his weekly spelling list.
I'm not monkeying around about it either.
I'm always trying to think of new ways to present the same old boring thing.
