Welcome to the Web Page "PRASINI PRIZA". The page
    aims to give educational information and educational
    material to parents and teachers of young children with or
    without learning difficulties / dyslexia.

    You will find online games, colouring pictures, mazes,
    memory games,matching games, spot the difference
    games, coordination games,dot to dot printables, colour by
    number printables, arts and crafts, math worksheets and
    much more (free printing).

    "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".

    How I became involved with special education

    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
    learning.

    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
    work wonders.  

    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!
