Charles is on Google Meet online class

Charles (not his real name) is a young adult, now in his late teen was born with lown vision and diagnosed as ADHD too. He totally lost his vision on his left eye at the age of seven due to retinal detachment. At the age of ten, his right eye suffered the same fate; retinal detachment. He was diagnosed with cataract and glaucoma a year later. He is staying with his parents together with two sisters and an elder brother. 

He is the third child in the family. Due to his nature of not being able to sit quietly for a while, certain activities have to be carried out under adult’s supervision.

During movement control order(MCO) period, Charles was not able to attend classes at St Nicholas’s Home,PenangLessons are conducted via online at the comfort of hishome. It is basically on one-to-one teaching focuses onbasic academic based on his capability.  He is taught on learning new vocabulary, form new words, making sentences, storytelling and basic arithmetic. During his online lesson, Charles needs coaxing from his teacher to stay attentive during the lesson. Although he looks forward to meeting the teacher online platform, he is quite chatty and seems to be on “themove” during the lesson. He will be moving around most of the time with the mobile phone. However, if his dad is at home, he will be very obedient and sits through the online class.

He can be quite forgetful, hencethe teacher constants repeating the lesson especially on counting and spelling. Now he is able to do counting,adding and subtractionin sums of less than 20, and simple spelling on his own independently. This small step of achievement never come easily without thecooperation of the parents and we are looking forward to have joint effortto bring the best in Charles’s learning experience.

Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.”
