Learning Disabilities Simulation

Thursday, April 11, 2019
7:00-8:30 PM

Step into the shoes of a student with Learning Disabilities. This simulation recreates the experience of having dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, auditory processing and executive dysfunction. This simulation is intended to help the general public understand the struggles of having a learning disability in a traditional school setting.

Learning Disabilities Simulation

Each LD Series we host at least one Learning Disabilities Simulation, an eye-opening experience that aims to simulate different types of LD. Through this simulation, we try to help you understand what students with LD are going through each day and provide some accommodations that may help them. While we host this simulation at least once a year here, it is also fully mobile! Horizon Academy can visit your school, community group, etc. and lead the simulation for a group of 20-48 participants. If you know of a group in the Kansas City area who would be interested, please contact Joy Branch
