Dr. Nabil Costa, Executive Director of the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Services, addresses a message to parents whose children have special needs. After 18 long years of raising a child with challenges, Dr. Costa underscores acceptance and patience as two key elements for successfully dealing with these children. At the same time, he emphasizes that one duty of each parent with a son or daughter different from other children is to teach him or her something new every day.

الدكتور نبيل قسطه، المدير التنفيذي للجمعية اللبنانية للانماء التربوي والاجتماعي، يوجه رسالة إلى أولياء الأمور الذين لديهم أطفال ذوي احتياجات خاصة. بعد 18 عامًا من تربية طفل يعاني من التحديات، يشدّد د. قسطه على الواقع أنّ القبول والصبر هما العنصران الأساسيان للتعامل بنجاح مع هؤلاء الأطفال. وفي الوقت نفسه، يشدد على واجب كل والد عنده ابن أو ابنة يختلف عن الأطفال الآخرين أن يعلمه أو يعلمها شيئًا جديدًا كل يوم

Emily Hoppin

A native from the state of Colorado, USA, Emily first came to Lebanon in 2016 to volunteer teach at a summer English camp for refugees hosted by one of LSESD’s partner churches in Zahle. Upon arriving in Lebanon, she immediately fell in love with the country and knew that she was destined to come back for the long term. After completing her master’s degree in Linguistics at the Free University of Berlin, Emily was finally able to realize her dream of moving to Lebanon. In August 2019, Emily Hoppin joined the LSESD team as its Communications Officer. “Working at LSESD is like putting that missing piece into a puzzle. For the first time in my life, everything fits,” she states. With a knack for languages, writing, and connecting with people, Emily feels as though all of her skills, talents, and passions have finally come together in one place through her work at LSESD. Just as her first name means “industrious”, Emily believes in hard work and perseverance. Allowing Colossians 3:23 to guide her work ethic, Emily seeks to serve the Lord in her role at LSESD with all of her heart, mind, soul, and strength.
