Description of Contents
This animation video underlines the everyday struggles of children with Learning Disabilities and the importance and power of words when it comes to overcoming obstacles. It is obvious that students with learning disabilities have great difficulties in daily life. This video tries to raise the consciousness of people who encounter such students. It stresses the importance that these students who suffer Learning Disabilities should be bolstered up by their classmates and teachers.
This video is a well turned out visual animation which shows the daily struggles of a student who suffers Learning Disabilities. Unfortunately, children with LD are generally ridiculed at school and in their environment. This leads to a totally collapse of their self-esteem and as a result of this, the student is not able to learn anything anymore. Even if there is any savable resource in terms of learning, it simply disappears because of the humiliating acts of other people. The animation is easy to understand and the conveyed message is clear: Supporting and encouraging students with Learning Disabilities.
