For part of Nasko’s schooling, I thought it would be good to start practicing the art of conversation – specifically answering questions. We’ll start with simple questions that have memorizable answers, and then move on to the more complex questions (like, what is your favorite _____…)


We started yesterday and without prompting, here’s how Nasko answered his first set of questions:


What is TATY’S name?

What is MAMA’S name?

Do you go to SCHOOL?
Yes. Ride the bus. Miss Linda’s bus. Go to school.
[I was going for “School at home with Mama,” not what he did two years ago!]

Do you have SISTERS?

How OLD are you?
All done seven?
[I was going for eight!]

What is your NAME?

Do you have BROTHERS?
Yes. E. Louis.

How ARE you today?
[Much to work on with this one.]

Do you have a PET?
Yes. Allen.

When is your birthday?
I don’t know.

Where do you live?
Nasko’s house.
[Umm. True, I guess!]

Well, we have our work cut out for us, but he did better than I had expected!
