Antony is a second cousin to José Eduardo, our first student here at CICS. His deafness is genetic since he has a deaf grandpa. His mom had asked to send him to school last year, but we felt that he was very young and still needed to be with his mom. He is now five years old.
In contrast to many of the deaf that come here, he is extremely quiet and needs motivation to play and do any type of exercise.
Anthony is very sociable, enjoying greeting other people and shaking hands. He explains with great detail anything that happens.
He is also very intelligent and since he started so young, we hope that he will learn quickly and be able to reach an academic level normal for his age.
We ask your prayers for him.
