 “At SAP we play computer almost every day. I don’t like the class-work but I love computer! There is one game I like very much, and at the beginning of that game I always have to type my name. At first I my teacher had to type, but now I know which keys to use.

Yesterday I was moved to another teacher’s group. That teacher did not know that I can’t write my name, and I felt very bad when she told me to do so. When she was not looking I sneaked to the computer lab. I quickly copied the letters on the keys that make my name. When I returned my teacher was annoyed that I went out, but she praised me because I had my name right!”
