Experience Dyslexia® is available to any school campus through LLDC. Each workshop can accommodate up to 60 participants. Schools must provide a meeting room large enough for 6 stations with seating for 10 people with tables and chairs. Workshops may be scheduled after 4:00 PM, Mon-Fri or any Saturday. Workshops are free unless travel is required. If you ISD is out-of-town there may be a small travel fee.
Experience Dyslexia® — A Learning Disabilities Simulation. The six-station simulation is a hands-on experience that lets participants experience 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.
How the simulation works:
Participants rotate among six learning stations that simulate language-related tasks that may be encountered in the classroom and workplace. Station leaders guide participants through each 10-minute station. Followed by a review of the experience.
Station 1: Learn to Read simulates a beginning reading problem
Station 2: Listen to Me simulates an auditory figure-ground problem
Station 3: Write with Mirrors simulates a visual-motor and writing problem
Station 4: Name That Letter simulates a letter-word identification problem
Station 5: Write or Left simulates a copying and writing problem
Station 6: Hear and Spell simulates an auditory discrimination problem
The simulation has been shown to be an effective teaching tool. A 2008 study from researchers at Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) using materials from the NCBIDA simulation clearly showed that participation increased awareness of dyslexia among teachers-in-training. http://www.dyslexia-ncbida.org/articles/fall09/benefits_of_dyslexia_simulation.html
