I hope you aren't making a thinly veiled references to his English grammar.
I have trauma from numerous domestic abuses during 1990's about situation with speech therapy. My grandfather abused me at all time when I was unable to speak orally and turned my hearing aids to max as possible, it has done to damage my hearing so I lost most benefits with hearing aids in 1994. I didn't know how to report to my parent about situation with my grandfather. When my grandfather died in 1995 due to brain/lung cancer so my grandmother decided to nagging with abuse to make me to use oral languages, but she didn't understand about what I am saying. My mother realized that I was hurt from abuses and talked to grandmother about must use sign language. I didn't receive CI until 1999 and it didn't help with oral language, except for saying no so I decided to stopped it for good, along with head injury from skateboard accident renders CI as useless. It was 10 years ago.
Even, prior to enroll at deaf school as 10th grade but my reading level was 3rd grade because I was in special education for rest of my childhood and they were very underperforming. It took years for my reading level went higher to high school level and expert in algebra.
