    Default Please rephrase this sentence for me

    Good day,

    That comment is essentially negative, so it is difficult to rephrase it positively

    You could try to phrase it along the lines of

    'Hector can recognise the shapes of everyday objects but needs a lot of help in talking about them'.

    I'll never forget the report of an army instructor about a particularly ineducable recruit:

    'Private Parts* is able to perform simple tasks under strict supervision'.

    * not his real name.
