If You Know What I Mean
I mean people who were raised using the oral system but for some reason they never mastered it. So until someone cottoned on to that they were left with no language skills to speak of. Even oral 'successess' have some problems. I know from my time at PHU and my deafblind friend Kerry. Her dad was very big on the oral only way of doing things. She could speak but her comprehention skills left a lot to be desired.
yes but written and spoken language are different - even for same language. you can actually be a great speaker but a horrible writer. and vice versa
