Simulations Demonstrating the Experiences of Students with Dyslexia
Dyslexia for a Day: A Simulation of Dyslexia is a kit that can be used by individuals or groups of experienced teachers, teacher-training candidates, practitioners, immediate and extended family members, or anyone else interested in learning more about dyslexia and what those with dyslexia often experience when reading, writing, and processing. The kit walks users through five simulations: two reading, two writing, and one processing simulation. The kit has three components: a DVD with interviews and a PowerPoint presentation for processing the simulation; a step-by-step guide for completing the simulations and information on each simulation, including its purpose, design, and relationship to dyslexia; as well as a Resource section; a full set of master copies needed to complete all five simulations. The Dyslexia Training Institute offers the kit at a cost of $149.
