Riia Talve is a self advocate who lives in Canada and speaks up about her experience of having a learning disability. Last year our Oxford Young People’s group had a Skype conversation with her.
Here is a video of her speaking about her experience in school as a student with special needs. She thinks it is important to be given the opportunity to fail.
She says, “Having the opportunity to fail was awesome. I was like ‘This is totally wrong, but I did it all by myself!'”
