Event Details

A Simulation of What it Feels Like to Have Dyslexia...

"Walk In Their Shoes"

 

Experience Dyslexia:  The simulation is a hands-on experience that lets participants go through some of the challenges and frustrations faced by people with this language-based learning disability. The updated simulation, formerly known as "Put Yourself in the Shoes of a Person with Dyslexia," provides a lively, thought-provoking activity for teachers, parents, or anyone interested in better understanding the lives of individuals with dyslexia. This simulation was designed to increase awareness of the difficulties and frustrations that people with dyslexia (specific language learning disability) encounter daily.  It is hoped that this experience will lead to greater empathy and understanding and provide insight into working more effectively with these individuals.
