Reading Dyslexia and Other LDs with Piperita Patty
MetadataShow full item record
This contribute presents the idea, purpose and impact of the free editorial project Leggere i DSA con Piperita Patty (“Reading LDs with Peppermint Patty”). Charles Schulz’s strips, and in particular those with Piperita Patty, were here used in order to raise awareness amongst schoolteachers of all levels, students and their families on the subject of specific learning difficulties and the related new legislation. Selected strips have been integrated into some significant passages of the text of the law in order to draw up a free publication (thanks to the grant of rights by Peanuts Worldwide) made available on the website of the Regional School Office of Emilia-Romagna. The purpose was trying to outline the complexity of the situations of LDs and the educational intervention keeping it light.
