"Prasini Priza" means "Green Plug" in Greek. My son could
not remember how to pronounce the word "Prasini" (green)
at the age of five. So, I painted a green plug. I was singing
with my boy "Prrrr, Prrrr, Prasini Priza, Priza Prasini,
Prrrr, Prrrr", emphasising the fact that both words begin
with the sound "pr". We sang and danced at this rhythm,
we passed the plug to one another and we had a good laugh.
My son enjoyed it so much that in a few hours time he said
"Can we play Prasini Priza?". It was a rewarding moment
for me as I realised that he had remembered how to
pronounce the word "prasini" without any help from me. I
said "We play in a minute, could you please tell me the
colour of these leaves?". He said "Prasini Priza" (in a
couple of days he learned how to use the word "Prasini"
without using the word "Priza").
I realised then what special education is all about. I
realised how much can be achieved with the multisensory
method. I made a promise to myself that if I ever did
anything that involved special education and learning
difficulties, I would name it "Prasini Priza".

When my son, Constantinos, was three years old, I noticed
that he could not tell me the names of colours, he mixed up
the meanings of certain words and at times he would
forgεt the names of his closest friends. I knew that he
was smart boy and yet there were things that he could not
do as well as I thought he should do for his age.
When Constantinos turned four, a friend mentioned to me
that he might be dyslexic. Constantinos had a screening
test. He was put in the «high risk population» meaning that
there was a high probability of being diagnosed with
dyslexia when he took the proper test (any time after he
turned seven and had been tought how to read and write).
I was determined to find out everything I could about
dyslexia so I searched the internet, I read books and I
went to seminars. I took the Hornsby Correspondence
Course for teaching students with learning difficulties/
dyslexia. Special education can be used to teach all
children, whether dyslexic or not, with learning difficulties
or without. So, I thought that even if Constantinos was not
dyslexic, he could benefit from a special education
curriculum designed for children.
I finished my course when Constantinos was five and a half
years old and my younger boy, Thalis, was one year old. I
started using new methods to teach Constantinos colours,
numbers, letters, maps and so on. I was fascinated with
the speed he would learn and grab information when being
taught in this special way. The more Constantinos learned,
the more I wanted to understand the whole process of his
Constantinos is almost twelve years old today and has
been diagnosed with dyslexia. He is thriving at school and
his teachers cannot believe he has dyslexia. He has learned
to develop his own methods for remembering things
(dyslexia has to do with low auditory memory).
My younger son, Thalis, a seven year old boy , is also
showing signs of being dyslexic. This time I don’t feel any
of the stress that I felt when Constantinos was at a similar
age. I know he can do well at school and I know that with
proper education he will be just fine. Special education can
I feel that my children are blessed with dyslexia. They
have humour, they have their own special practical way of
thinking and they are good at sports, dancing and
computers. They can be very inventive and creative. I just
have to remind myself that I need to adapt to ‘their’ way
of thinking and learning!
