NEVA'S VIDEO ABOUT DYSLEXIA
We are lucky to have some really exceptional students here at LCS who are true role models for both primary and secondary students.
Year 9 student, Neva, has kindly agreed to share this video with the LCS community and we thank her for doing so. venue dans les classes de CM1 et CM2 présenter sa vidéo.
"Last year, I did a mini TED talk in English about dyslexia. I, myself, learnt plenty of things during my research for the talk and I shared this with my family and friends, many of them told me this taught them a lot about dyslexia. For my oral exam for the Brevet, I decided to speak about dyslexia in general, in order to help people understand this subject more."
Thank you, Neva.
