Dyslexia Awareness Month: Dyslexia for a Day Simulation Kit

The Dyslexia Training Institute created the Dyslexia for a Day: A Simulation of Dyslexia kit that can be used by individuals or groups of experienced teachers, teacher training candidates, practitioners, immediate and extended family members, or anyone interested in learning more about dyslexia. The purpose of the kit is to provide a closer look at what those with dyslexia often experience with reading, writing and processing. The kit walks participants through five different simulations: two reading, two writing and one processing simulation. It is designed to help individuals gain a better understanding of and empathy for those children and adults who struggle with dyslexia.

The video below gives a glimpse into one of the five simulations on Dyslexia for a Day. The DVD is also accompanied by a handbook that can be used for professional development or individual use. To order visit the Dyslexia Training Institute website.
