Have you ever struggled in school or wondered what it would be like not to succeed because of the way you learn? Have you wondered what a school day is like for a student with a language-related disability?
As part of October as Learning Disabilities Awareness Month, Hamlin Robinson School is leading a program that simulates the experiences a dyslexic child faces in a typical classroom. Experience this simulation of life with dyslexia and understand its impact on the learning process. A series of exercises will lend insight into the auditory, visual and kinesthetic challenges of dyslexia.
This event is intended for adults and older children.

Dyslexics of the world untie!
Different learning styles must be addressed. It is great to see people working on this. Would love to see the day when people of differing methods are seen as just a piece of the puzzle rather than disordered (ADHD) or otherwise dissed (dislexia) and dismissed. Thanks.
Does anyone know if their child age 10 should come or be beneficial for them to attend with their parent?
I don’t represent the school but speaking as someone who attended one of these simulations I would say if the 10 year old is a sibling of someone with a learning disability it would be beneficial but if the child is the one with the learning disability this event is not for them. It’s an event geared towards “typical” learners to simulate the experience of a learning disability.
