“Maybe you’ve felt that your child with learning differences is just not trying hard enough at school. This simulation promises attendees an eye-opening exploration of what it’s like to walk in your children’s shoes. “ — Ronna Mandel from her article in L.A. Parent

The workshop is presented through learning stations that simulate learning disabilities such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, ADHD, Auditory Processing Disorder, and other Language Based Disabilities that may be encountered in the classroom and workplace. Station leaders guide participants through each 15-minute station, so they can experience what it is like to have these deficits.

“I found it extremely eye-opening to put myself in the shoes of a dyslexic learner. I thought I had an idea what students with dyslexia felt, but I really didn’t. I was frustrated when doing the tasks and can only imagine what a student with dyslexia must feel every day.”
