“Working together, helping our students realise their true potential.”
In some parts of the world, October is the Learning Disabilities Awareness month for 2020. The Student Support Services department took this week to build more awareness towards Learning Disabilities in a small way which we hope will have a positive impact on our school community.A learning disability, also called a learning difficulty or learning difference, affects the ability to acquire, retain, understand, organize and/or use information. Sometimes one of these areas is affected and sometimes multiple areas are impaired. Because learning difficulties affect reading, writing, math and processing of information, they are an area that draws particular attention in an academic setting.
On Wednesday 14th October the Student Support Services shared a video with the IMYC middle school students called “Be INSPIRED” during a Pastoral Lesson on Learning Styles hosted by the Pastoral Coordinator. In the video, a former ISL student talks about his learning journey through discovering and dealing with dyslexia. Click the link to view the video:Be Inspired: Lupa Martins' Story
