    Please rephrase this sentence for me

    Good day,

    I would like a comment rephrased to be a positive outlook

    [he] finds it difficult to talk about the shapes of everyday objects.

    Re: Please rephrase this sentence for me

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

    Re: Please rephrase this sentence for me

    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.
