A learner’s voice…..an extract from her school speech.
I’ve been told that my eyes twitch a lot, but I don’t notice it. This causes headaches and visual fatigue.
I sit with my friends in class now because I have a laptop and iPad. My laptop has accessibility features to make stuff bigger and easier for me to see.
I have gone on immersion courses where I meet other people my age going through the same or similar situations. They’re so much fun! I have the chance to make amazing friends that live all over New Zealand. Some of the friends I’ve made also have nystagmus and it helps my confidence a lot. I’m always reassured that even though it feels like I’m the only one that’s different, I am not alone.
