As Kamen’s parents weighed his possible communication outcomes, they thought of their family back in Bulgaria: the grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends who already loved their son deeply. They wanted to give Kamen the opportunity to communicate with them in their native language. Culture is shared through language. It is an expression of who we are as a community and it’s the way we pass along our values from generation to generation. With Listening and Spoken Language (LSL), they learned Kamen would be able to speak multiple languages, including Bulgarian, and connect more closely with his cultural heritage.
