[Disability] The School

Post by nocturnalie on Tue Feb 21, 2012 9:53 pm

Snooze's newest foster mother, Romana, was not like those who had come before her.

For one, she had been ashamed that she could not sign to him. She'd written him a letter before he arrived, then sat with him as he read it. He'd been forced to explain that he couldn't sign--that he'd been deaf for fifteen years and hadn't picked up any ASL.

Perils of living in the foster system. He'd never lived with anyone long enough for them to fork out the money for lessons, for them to learn to sign to communicate with him. He didn't speak, either, hating how people flinched at the sound of his voice. So he'd been expecting, like he always had, to communicate by notes and gestures and lip-reading, for as long as he lived with this woman.

But Romana was determined to be different. She'd taken him to doctors, and to a speech therapist, and to deaf specialists. All of them had said the same: Snooze was capable of learning sign language if he and Romana really put the effort in, and they had heard of this new school opening up for students with disabilities not far away.

So here they were. Romana had driven him to the school last week and enrolled him, and now she was dropping him off for his first day.

Snooze looked back at the car. Romana waved to him. She wouldn't come in with him; she'd said that he needed to do this himself. So he didn't hear the shouts for him to watch out, heads up, and he didn't see the person run right into him and knock him over.

Mitz wasn't looking where he was going. It's kind of a problem, and one that he was aware of. He gets all kinds of distracted by what's going on around him. Listening to what people are saying, trying to catch people's eyes so he can sigh at them and tell them things. He heard someone shout out "Hey! Watch out!" but for some reason or another, he just wasn't expecting that voice to be talking to him.

So he ran head first into some kid and they both went flying onto the ground, landing on their asses. Mitz blinked through the sudden pain and tried to focus on the kid he hit. He signs, desperately trying to let him know that he didn't mean to.

"Sorry, sorry, I'm an idiot," he signs, standing up and then reaching to pull the boy up to his feet.

Snooze lay on the ground, stunned, for a long moment. Then he saw a hand waving in front of his face and instinctively flinched away; he fumbled behind himself for his bag, which had gone flying when he had.

When he had scrambled back a bit, he saw the boy who'd crashed into him was just offering a hand to pull him up.

Feeling mightily stupid, Snooze took it.

Mitz pulls the kid up to his feet and signs again, realising the boy must not have seen him do so before.

"Sorry. Are you okay?" Mitz smiles nervously at him while he seems to think about this. Mitz decides to go to pick up the boy's bag and things, which got a little scattered when they fell over, to try to make it up to him. Hopefully Mitz won't get a punch and he can go to class without a bruise this time.

Snooze watches the boy's hands fly, and stomps down on the irrational annoyance; this is what he's here to learn. He shouldn't be getting jealous of someone else being able to do it already.

When the boy bends down to pick up Snooze's things, Snooze decides he must be trying to be friendly--or he's a very brazen thief. He crouches down to pick up the escaping pens, too, so he doesn't have to try and reply.

Mitz hands over everything he can find on the ground and smiles, worried, at the other kid. Looks like he doesn't want to talk to him. Or can't. Mitz cocks his head, thinking. Can't is a possibility. He's never seen this boy around and he hasn't signed or said anything yet. He's definitely not blind or anything, Mitz would have noticed and the boy wouldn't have focused on Mitz so well when he was signing.

Mitz tries another approach, and mouths out, "Can you lip read?"

Mitz beams and then thinks about what he should say.

"I'm sorry for running into you," he mouths, slowly, trying to figure out exactly how his mouth should be. He can lip read himself, but he rarely has to do this for other people.

Mitz smiles again, glad to be understood [and not getting beaten up]. The class bell rings and several lights flicker around the campus. Mitz tugs gently on the boy's jumper.

"Class," he mouths, and signs.

Snooze sees the flashing lights out of the corner of his eye and turns to look at them, and it clicks, that they must be some kind of bell for deaf people. He looks back to the boy when he feels the tug on his jumper.

He nods, and mouths, "Where?"

Mitz points out to the adjoining building to the main building. He lets go of the boy's jumper but falls into step with him. They're going to the same place, after all. And it'd be nice to walk with someone, since he won't see Mouse until later.
(I assume the blind kids would have a different schedule.)

(Probably. Different methods of communication, after all. Mitz could probably be in some of her classes, though, since he can hear.) Snooze falls into step with the boy, hoping they're going to the right place. It's his first day: he doesn't know where he's supposed to go. Maybe he should ask--he pulls on the boy's jumper, then points to him, then to his ear. Are you deaf?

(Makes sense.)
Mitz looks at him and it may take a minute to understand what the boy is trying to say/ask. But he does get it, and shakes his head. He looks oddly sorry about it, though. It means he doesn't have that in common with his new friend-like-person-for-now. Mitz touches his throat, and mouths "Dumb."

Snooze nods. He thinks for a moment, that means that he could speak and the boy could hear him--but then immediately discards that idea. His foster parents have flinched, before, when he's spoken out loud to them. He won't speak out loud to Romana or to this boy, or to anyone else he wants to be friends with. He doesn't want them looking at him like that.

They arrive at the classroom door and Snooze hovers nervously.

Mitz looks at the boy for a moment before pushing the door open.

"It's okay," he mouths. Hopefully he looks like he means it - because he does. It will be okay for this kid. He seems really friendly and he's new and people like new kids, for a while, here.

Snooze stops himself from chewing on his lip, and follows the boy into the classroom. He pulls out the slip of paper they'd given him when he enrolled, listing his information, and goes to the teacher.

Mitz slides into his seat when the kid goes off to consult the teacher. He doesn't think they'll talk again. Mitz settles in to listen lazily to the class and stares out the window.

The eagle-eyed teacher had noticed how Snooze came in with the other boy, Snooze had to assume, because she seated him in the empty desk next to the boy. He was no longer paying attention, staring out the window, so Snooze quietly (he hoped quietly) got his things out of his bag, his book and pen and notepad, and watched the teacher's fingers move as she introduced him to the class.

The teacher speaks while she signs, so Mitz catches the gist of what's going on. He moves to look around the class to find - oh, he's sitting beside him. He pulls out a sheet of paper from his copy book and scribbled on it: Hello, Edgar. My name is Jacob. My friends call me Mitz. He draws a little smilie face before he stops to think and regrets it instantly, but can't erase it now. It'll show. And it's one thing to preemptively draw a happyface. It's another to erase it. Mitz passes the note over.

Snooze looks in surprise at the note being tucked under his elbow. He reads it and smiles at the boy--at Mitz. He writes back: People usually call me Snooze. Nice to meet you.

You too, Mitz writes back. You have really nice handwriting, Snooze. Sorry again about this morning. Most people look where they're going, but I wasn't born with the ability. He smiles crookedly at Snooze.

Quite all right, Snooze writes back, almost forgetting to reply when he sees Mitz smile like that. He's smiling back before he can help himself. I was not looking, either. I like your handwriting. Very energetic.

Mitz likes the way Snooze is replying. It's making him imagine a rich, posh voice speaking to him. Thanks. Teachers think I have to tidy it up a bit, but it's not working. You should train me, I bet they'll love your handwriting.

Snooze laughs silently. Then someone puts a hand on the front of his desk and he realises the teacher was trying to get his attention. She's signing quickly and speaking quickly, too, and he sits back, panicked at not being able to understand. He puts his hands up and gestures for her to slow down, please.

Mitz shrinks back into his seat. He should have noticed the teacher speaking to them, but he was too distracted by Snooze. This is all his fault. He's kind of doing nothing to endear himself to Snooze today.

The teacher nearly ignores the note, too intent on giving out to Snooze for misbehaving on his first day - when Mitz waves at her to get her attention and signs quickly at her. He explains the situation and apologises for both of them.

Snooze sighs with relief when the teacher abruptly relaxes. He shoots a grateful look at Mitz, then focuses on what she's saying--mostly about how he should be paying attention if he expects to learn anything here, and can he please leave the socialising for the playground.

Snooze shoots him a brief smile, and focuses on the lesson. Most of the time he can't follow what the teacher is saying, but she writes on the board as well, which helps.

Mitz goes back to looking out the window and listening absently, sometimes writing down notes in his own messy scrawl that probably can't be understood by anyone else. Born with the handwriting of a doctor writing a prescription.

(I'm trying to figure out how Mitz would communicate with Mouse since she can't see his signing, until Snooze works up the courage to talk. Maybe Morse code on her palm?)
Mitz enjoys it. He likes being able to sit with someone for once, since Jerel goes to another school. He wouldn't exactly know what to talk about, though, but he still has the notepad and a pencil out in front of them on the grass where they sit.

Snooze is happy just eating and sitting in silence. Any friends he's had before now, that's how they've gotten along. But eventually I think he would reach for the pad and paper and ask Mitz how long he'd been at the school.

Mitz takes the pad and writes out his education history quickly. Two years at the school, then homeschooling and tutors at home before that. Nothing interesting, he stresses. But it does mean that he sometimes gets bored when the school when they go over things that he already learned. He apologises on the sheet, if that seems big-headed.

Snooze shakes his head. It does not seem bigheaded at all. He's hesitant to continue. I went to regular school for a while, until it became too overwhelming. Since then my foster parents mostly just made me read textbooks.

Mitz looks at him, thinking. If you're fostered, does that mean you won't be staying here for long? Or are you here for good?

Snooze shrugs. It depends how long my foster mother wants to keep me.

(Snoory for the delay, my internet on my computer is suddenly not working. I have to go in half an hour, too.)

Mitz pauses. Then writes:I hope she keeps you for a long time.

(Aw man. Boo, computer. That's okay. I will be around but gaming so replies will be sparse.)

I think I would like to stay, Snooze agrees. Do you think--I know they are supposed to be teaching me to sign. But do you think you could, too? I like the way your hands move.

Mitz smiles, almost to himself, and looks at his hands. Then he picks up the pencil again. I think I'd like that. But I don't know how good a teacher I'd be.

I do not know if I am a good student, Snooze points out. How do you sign 'hello'?

(HI)
