Andrew is a very polite 9 year old who has been living in a wonderful foster home for the past year. He is deaf. He communicates with his peers and house nannies by pointing to objects and expressing his needs. He has begun learning sign language 3 times a week with an American therapist at the foster home. They are working on identifying objects, things, colors, and people. He is proving to be a quick learner. Teaching Andrew to sign and understand concept ideas has been difficult due to his lack of reading, however they are diligently working through it with the use of picture scenes and acting. He is a very bright and outgoing young man. He is very smart and the therapist believes he has a lot of potential for learning sign language! He has a wonderful sense of humor and a smile which can light up any room.
