Mentor Tales Part 1

In the next weeks we will post some mentor tales which Sivu Nobongoza, Transition Specialist and mentor at SAYes wrote down. The images are also made by him. Here is the first tale:


My mentee really wanted to read better. He is dyslexic and hates not being able to understand billboard adverts and street signs. Initially I tried to get him to read novels or short stories, which made things difficult for both of us. Then I introduced him to comic books and just like that his interest peaked. First, Atom Man and Captain Marvel, then Archie and Jughead, Asterix and Obelix and by the end of the year he was reading the Sunday Times and any piece of writing he could find with absolute fluency.
