My Story: Taksin Boi Latulee
As an established special needs school, part of the role of the VIE is to assist other educational establishments to recognise specific learning difficulties in students and to be able to address these needs in an appropriate manner. However, we also recognise that we can’t look out for every special child but we do have our successes and Boi is a prime example.
As a child in a Thai school he was not as quick to respond to questions in lessons as his peer group. As a result of his slowness he was bullied by his classmates and beaten by his teachers. When he arrived at the VIE he had difficulty speaking and was fearful and non-trusting of adults. But through our care and understanding we have seen this frightened and unsure student mature into a confident young man. He still experiences moments of anxiety, especially in unfamiliar surroundings, but he has learned to cope with his disability.
As part of the collaboration between the VIE and the Sheraton Hotel in Asoke, he currently attends the hotel for 2 days each week and has worked in several different departments, expanding is knowledge and understanding of a business he could excel in.
