Parents, teachers and other professionals may have an academic understanding of the problems faced by individuals with dyslexia, but we may not fully grasp their feelings of anxiety, frustration and failure.
"Experience Dyslexia" is a simulation designed to provide a semblance of that experience and increase awareness of the difficulties that learners with dyslexia encounter daily with reading, handwriting and listening. Participants will rotate among six learning stations that simulate various language-related tasks similar to those encountered in the classroom and workplace. We hope this experience will provide insight into working more effectively with students with dyslexia and lead to greater empathy and understanding.
