This Eathan Ketchum's website and here you'll learn about him. reading and writing was hard for Eathan as a child since he did not learn to speak until around the age of 3. He took speech class until the end of second grade and enjoyed it very much. In speech class the teacher was very nice; and read lots of books to Eathan, and then had Eathan read the books as well this helped Eathan very much. The introduction of video games such as Pokemon, also helped Eathan learn to read and write as he would play though the games he read words and learned to write them too.
In class when Eathan wrote his classmates noticed that he wrote the letters of the alphabet different then them, He wrote the letters correct but started and ended in different places then them. This never discouraged him and Eathan still writes differently than most today.
