The CAIU will be hosting Experience Dyslexia, A Simulation, a full-day event to help educators enhance their understanding of dyslexia and learn strategies for accommodation from an experienced panel of volunteers from the Pennsylvania Branch of the International Dyslexia Association.
The first half of the day will be focused on helping educators develop a better understanding of students with dyslexia and other reading and writing disabilities. Performance indicators and behaviors that students with dyslexia and other SLDs exhibit in the classroom will be discussed, as will strategies for accommodating needs and differentiating instruction. The session will include an overview of readily available assistive technologies.
During the second half of the day, participants will be engaged in six simulated activities which mimic the experiences and processing of those with learning disabilities.
The day wraps up with a Q & A session with an experienced panel of volunteers from the Pennsylvania Branch of the International Dyslexia Association.
