Jaminton

Jaminton is nine years old, we´ve been helping him since 2009. He is diagnosed with an expressive and receptive language disorder and bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss disorder. His family did not have the financial resources to pay his rehabilitation. His speech therapies are every monday, the therapist has reported that Jaminton is now understanding and using personal pronouns, learning new melodies, and repeating simple and compound sentences after hearing them.

Jaminton is a boy characterized by his gentleness and sensibility, his process has been very well supported from home, however it is important to work with his attitude towards failure or reprimands as these conditions are usually assumed with tears and detachment front of the class.

His teacher reports that  Jaminton is having an excellent performance despite it´s difficulties for dictation, currently inverts letters / e / - / d /, however  he understands simple commands and instructions of the worksheets. After the holiday is observed more communicative, with good articulation and more intelligible language.

Potential long-term impact
