Horizon Academy offers the community a series of free informative seminars regarding learning disabilities and related topics. The “Learning Disability Series” is held on Thursday evenings throughout the year. We invite you to join us to hear from professionals as well as those who have personally been affected by learning disabilities. While the events are free, we do ask that you RSVP for these events by clicking the links below.
**Unfortunately, we often only have a small fraction of attendees show up to virtual lectures after signing up. We are aware that things happen last minute, but please consider whether or not you will be able to log in at the time of the lecture before signing up.**

Step into the shoes of a student with learning disabilities. This simulation recreates the experience of having dyslexia and other learning disabilities. This simulation is intended to help the general public understand the struggles of having a learning disability in a traditional school setting.
Twice a year, Horizon Academy hosts a Learning Disability Simulation open to the public. This simulation is designed for parents, grandparents, teachers, doctors, tutors, and other adults and provides an eye-opening experience that aims to simulate different types of learning disabilities. Through this simulation, we try to help you understand and empathize with what students with learning disabilities are going through each day in the classroom. At the end of the simulation, we open up for discussion and offer suggestions for accommodations that may help students with LD.
We only host two simulations a year at Horizon Academy, but we can bring the simulation to your school or organization! Horizon Academy staff and volunteers will visit your school, community group, etc. at your preferred location and lead the simulation for a group of 50 adult participants (35 minimum, 60 maximum). If you are interested in scheduling an LD Simulation, please contact Laura Mombello at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Note: Due to our schedule during the beginning of the school year, we will be unable to host LD Simulations during the month of August. Thank you for understanding.
