When, one evening in March of 2021, imagining a computer keyboard kit, Ryan Dubois, a high school student at 1st STI2D in Saint Brioque, had no idea what scale his invention would take. He was dyslexic, he just wanted to make his life easier with these colorful extra keys to stick to the keyboard to select letters better and be faster. And you have a more secret and more beautiful system than the simple kindergarten posters used in psychological movement.
More than a year later, Ryan’s invention is now available to Britton students after seducing Emmanuel Ethes, president of the academy. As it had already invaded Boulanger Foundation and collection stores across France at the end of summer 2021. Or the Nancy Metz Academy, which bought about sixty sets for its students in September.
First order of 100 sets
With Emmanuel Ethes, the meeting took place in November, at Ryan High School. “It was a beautiful moment,” the teenager smiles. “The president of the university was very kind and very caring when I introduced him to the group.”
A week later, the university’s technical advisor asked Ryan and her parents about four models of the kit so that Emmanuel Ethes could present them during a meeting at the Ministry of National Education. The Minister requested a note on this matter. And we learned that the group was also presented at a general meeting of heads,” confirms Olivier Dubois, Ryan’s father.
All of this is not for money but to help those who, like me, are dealing with dyslexia.
In the process, Emmanuel Ethis has ordered 100 kits at the beginning of 2022 to give to Academy students who may need them. “This innovation is of great help to people with dyslexia,” the university administration assures. Who thinks of the possibility of getting a second rank. “Some departments have already exhausted the stocks provided because there is real demand.”
A message from Emmanuel Macron
News that makes the teenager from Briochen “very proud”. Because the teenager who started his company deliberately R2DtooldysIn July 2021, he never lost sight of his primary goal. “It’s all not for money but to help those who, like me, deal with dyslexia,” he recalls.
With this idea of helping as many people as possible, he now hopes to see other academies asking for it. In any case, his invention caught the attention of the President of the Republic, who sent him a letter in the fall of 2021 to congratulate him. Humble, Ryan takes the opportunity to highlight “the very important work that Occupational Therapists do. The kit is in support of what they put in place.”
