Why did you send to away?<br />Dad: We had no other option. <br />Dad: Last year he failed in 3rd grade. Can you believe it? 3rd grade! On top of that, no signs on improvements. <br />Dad: Look at my elder son he is the top of his class. And Nosrep.........<br />Teacher: Do you know what his problem is?<br />Dad: Problem? Look at his attitude towards studies towards everything. <br />Dad: On top of that, he doesn't listed to anyone. <br />Teacher: No, I am asking his problem, you are telling me the symptoms. <br />Teacher: You are telling me that he had a fever, but I am asking why does he have a fever. <br />Dad: (Looking confused) Then you tell, if you think you know everything. <br />Teacher: Have you seen any patterns in his mistakes, or something he repeats over and over?<br />Dad: Ha what mistakes huh? Its all just mistakes. <br />Teacher: Then sir you cant se the patterns.<br />(Teacher take out Nosrep’s books)<br />Teacher: Here, take a look. <br />Teacher: Here “B” Instead of “D” and “D” instead of “B”. Meaning he confuses between similar looking letters. <br />Teacher: And here “S” and “R” are upside-down. A lot of letters are upside-down. <br />Teacher: See? Mirror imaging. <br />Teacher: “Animal” same mistake three times on the same page. Meaning he doesn't remember one wrong spelling. <br />Teacher: And the mixes up with similar sounds of words, for exapmle here “TOP” becomes “POT”, “SOLID” becomes “SOILED” <br />Teacher: Why dose he do this? Is he lazy? Dumb?<br />Teacher: No. In my opinion he has trouble recognizing similar letters. <br />Teacher: When people reap “APPLE” you make a image of an apple in your mind. <br />Teacher: But perhaps Nosrep cant read the word, and so can understand the word or what it means. <br />Teacher: To read and write, you have to understand a sound and shaping of the letters. <br />Teacher: And this need Nosrep can’t do this. <br />Dad: Its nothing like that. He’s just avoiding his studies. <br />(Teacher brings a box.)<br />Teacher: Please read this sir. <br />Dad: How am i supposed to read this, its in Egyptian. <br />Teacher: No, you can do it, give it a try. <br />Dad: Don’t talk nonsense, how can I read this?<br />Teacher: Now, sir you are misbehaving, to avoid reading it. You are being naughty. <br />(Silence, Dad realizes that the teacher was right)<br />Teacher: Nosrep would feel just like how you felt sir. <br />Teacher: He can’t recognize the letters. <br />(Pause)<br />Teacher: This problem is called Dyslexia. <br />Teacher: Sometimes with Dyslexia some more problems can occur, like confusion in understanding multiple instruction. <br />Teacher: Dose Nosrep have difficulty time in in shoe laces? <br />Mom: Yes. <br />Teacher: And dose he have difficulty catching a ball when you throw it at him?<br />Brother: He never judges the ball correctly. <br />Teacher: Thats is because he cant estimate the size, distance speed. <br />Teacher: By the time he figures that out, he’s already lost the ball. <br />Teacher: Just imagine, a kid. Who can’t do all the daily thing the others can do effortlessly. <br />Teacher: Imagine all the things he must be going thorough. <br />Teacher: He tries to cover up his problems with his attitude. <br />Teacher: Why tell the world that I cant do this. Why no just say I don't want to? <br />Teacher: All learned from the grown-ups. <br />Teacher: Now even his spirit has cracked, he has totally stopped painting. <br />(Mother and Brother shocked)<br />Teacher: Its a very sad story. <br />Mom: But why Nosrep? <br />Teacher: There is no answer to that. <br />Teacher: Dyslexia is a neurological disorder and can be caused mine genetics. <br />Dad: So, you are telling us that my son is mentally retarded? <br />Teacher: A very strange man you are. <br />Teacher: Here look at this, all these great colorful ideas. These are far beyond your and mine imagination. <br />Dad: How will he succeed form this? <br />Teacher: Why are you looking to success? <br />Dad: Then what else to look for?<br />Dad: What will he become in his life. <br />Dad: What value will he have in this competitive world. <br />Dad: Should I keep him in my house all his life? If that is what you are saying. <br />Teacher: Yes, I know the outside is a race.<br />Teacher: Every one wants to grow world class brains in their children's. <br />Teacher: Everyone wants a genius child, doctors, astronauts, mathematicians. <br />Teacher: 95% is just not good enough for some parents, anything below is just shameless. <br />Teacher: Why, isn’t that right?<br />Teacher: Why don’t you understand, every child is special. Every child has own dreams, capacities, achievements and interests that they desire. <br />Teacher: But no. <br />Teacher: You just want to push them to their limits, even if it means stealing happiness from their life. Do you really want that for Nosrep?<br /> (With no answer teacher leves)<br />(Nosreps learn the point the teacher has been trying to tell and the teacher storms out of the house without saying anything)<br />Scene 5<br />Art Teacher:<br />Friends today I will tell you a story. <br />There was a boy, don’t ask me where? He had trouble reading! Even though he tried really hard, he never knew that y comes after x. Alphabets were his enemies, they would dance in front of his eyes! The letters would fly around and irritate him all the time! Reading and writing would make him tired. Who would he tell his sad story to? His brain was empty and on top of that there was ABC DISCO. <br />One day he failed, people called him stupid and dumb but the poor boy took everything courageously and fought the world bravely. But one day the sun came up for him! When the whole world heard his theory everyone loved him! Ok then! Guess?! Who is it? Who is this boy?<br />(Albert Einstein face to the audience)<br />Student:<br />ALBERT EINSTEIN! <br />Art Teacher: <br />Yes! It’s Albert Einstein! Everyone knows him. He shocked the world with his theory. He even got awarded a noble prize in his life! <br />Let me show you something else!<br />( We Hold up a sketch of a helicopter )<br />Students:<br />IT’S A HELICOPTER!! <br />Art teacher:<br />NO, no, no. It’s not just ANY helicopter. It’s the helicopter that the great Leonardo Da Vinci sketched. He made the working sketch of the helicopter. Before the helicopter was even invented! <br />He used to write words babackwards <br />Does anyone understand? <br />Students:<br />NO<br />Art Teacher:<br />Holds up mirror kids start reading <br />Nosrep, turn the lights on. Who gave people electricity?<br />Nosrep:<br />Edison<br />Art Teacher:<br />Yes, it was Edison; even Thomas Edison had trouble reading and writing. <br />There are others too… Picasso he thought the number 7 was a upside down nose. Even Walt Disney! Agatha Kristy! Did you know that?<br />Wait, why am I telling you all of this. <br />Because I want you guys to know that there are so many people in the world that looked at the world in a COMPLETE DIFFERENCE PERSPECTIVES and gave the world a lot of success. I want you to know that everyone in this world is different, and these famous people still became successful in life because they are DIFFERENT. <br />So today in class, we will all create something interesting, something from your own perspective! Let’s go outside nearby the lake! <br />Art Teacher:<br />Nosrep, you stay for a while. Do you know there’s one person I didn’t tell you guys, it’s me. Even I had trouble reading and writing, my dad never understood me, he thought I was being naughty on purpose. He thought I was an idiot, he thought I wouldn’t be able to do anything in life. Today what I am, I’m right in front of you. <br />Let’s go out. <br />Nosrep:<br />Did you go to my house? <br />(They leave )<br />Scene 6<br />Narrator: Everyday after school, the art teacher becomes a tutor and gives a class to Nosrep.
