Tuesday 19/06/90 – Crumpled paper
Willem’s still working at home. Willem gave Hughan a piece of crumpled paper and held it near his face and told Hughan to put the rubbish in the dustbin.
Hughan walked off with the paper and went into the kitchen and through the paper away in the dustbin.
As you can imagine we were all very pleased with him. He thought this was great. He did this several times.
(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
