Sasha is a guy with Cerebral Palsy and though he's a man of few words, he's very expessive. Like many others with cerebral palsy, speech takes all his focused effort to formulate words and most people don't have time to wait patiently to listen. I'll share with you, once Sasha's in Stephen's Home with a computer in front of him he's going to be talking a mile a minute an it's going to take quite and effort to slow him down.
At the orphanage in Oleshky, Sasha was placed in a group, surrounded by little guys, close to half his age. I stared working with him just a few years before he was moved out to Dnipriany and found out he's quite intellegant. But Sasha has also learned to play dumb, as so many have assumed that of him his whole life. Below that initial surface he's quite the treasure, just waiting to be discovered.
