Roy is a middle-aged man who lives happily with his family in a big house. He is a successful craftsman now. But his life is not a56． so great. He had a learning disability from an early age. He went to a school for children like him and he got plenty of extra help in this school. He still suffered(受苦) the rest of his school days in public schools.
His life improved so much when he discovered art. The art world gave him a chance to express himself w57． words. He went to a workshop and gradually got good at making things with clay. Then he learned an important lesson: Though he was disabled in language, he could still be s58． and successfully express himself with clay.
He got his n59． lesson from rock climbing. It was a fun thing but he was scared from the start. He soon found it wasn’t a talent thing; it was just p60．. So he did it more. After about five years of climbing, he found himself in Yosemite Valley on a big wall. He learned that if a person fell in love with something and did it all the time, he would get better at it. And his confidence came along with it.
Later he found his e61． really helpful when learning how to read and write. Every day he spent many hours reading and writing, which he used to a62． as much as possible. After two hard years, he could read and write as well as others.
He has gone through the long process with art, rock climbing, reading and writing. Now he has got to a point in his life where he knows he is also able to dive into an area that is totally hard, unknown, but interesting.
