V Nithya has a strong interest in continuing the raising of awareness of Dyslexia. She feels it is of utmost importance to reach out to students who may need the help but may go unnoticed due to lack of awareness. She is also very interested in the emotional needs of students with learning differences. She feels that understanding their emotional needs is directly related to their motivation and learning. She is also part of the Resource Development committee which works on making manipulative for the DAS based curriculum. She also contributes to PREP 2 PSLE by doing PREP 2 PSLE talks in mainstream primary schools.
