Recommended Reading For Our Deaf Kids

Today we are cleaning my son's room for the start of the school year. This can be hazardous. I blogged about it in my other blog last year. Here is the link to give you an idea of what a huge task this is.

This year I stumbled across a very special book. When my son was younger it came to my attention he needed to learn to play with language. He also need to understand idioms. Well one book came to the rescue. I found "Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms" and handed it to him. He loved it and the problem was solved. I would encourage all deaf kids who use ASL as a first language to read it.

Well no more excuses to not continue, wish me luck.


  1. Oh the post about the messy room made me smile! My son also has a VERY messy room. The things I find in there! Ugh!

  2. That is a good book, idioms are not only difficult for deaf kids they are difficult for second language learners. My children always laugh when I try using English idioms lol, or translate one from my native language, but yes, the book is helpful!

  3. Ericka you made my day! Good to know I am not alone.
