Why does Peer support people with learning disabilities?
We hate to use the word ‘disability’. As a team with Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, we understand that while reading and spelling can be really difficult at times, we see our ‘disabilities’ as a bit of a superpower. Through our lifetimes, we have formed unique perspectives and some awesome creative problem solving techniques and that’s all thanks to Dyslexia and Dyscalculia.
We’re eager to spread our message that, our ‘disabilities’ are a part of who we are. They make us unique and while certain things may be more difficult than others, we’re here to give you the tools you need to approach those challenges in a different way. To make them manageable, to make them fun.
