Les AMAP en Midi-Pyrénées : relations de proximité entre agriculteurs et consommateurs

L’essentiel des produits alimentaires est aujourd’hui vendu par la grande distribution.

3.6 Reflecting on dyslexia

Throughout this unit, dyslexia has been evaluated as an example of ‘abnormality’, a difficulty, a problem in need of an intervention.

West (1997) reports that Nicholas Negroponte, the founding member of the Media Lab at the world renowned Massachusetts Institute of T
