Lubo learns to read

Lubo comes from outer space. On Earth, the little alien has to face all kinds of challenges, for example at school. Because reading and spelling are difficult for Lubo. How can he deal with the fact that he needs more time to read? What motivates him to learn? How can his teachers support him? And how can his school friends help him best?

"Lubo from Space" is a training programme for children who stand out at school at the latest because of their behaviour.
