Wacehlin came with his mother from Petion-Ville to have his hearing tested at one of our quarterly hearing clinics. He was found to be deaf and educable and so was accepted into the Haiti Deaf Academy. Though it was initially very difficult for Wachelin to adjust to living around so many other children (since he is his mothers only child), he has begun to get along well with the other students and learned invaluable social skills. Wachelin is very sweet and curious, which has helped him in quickly learning sign language.
