“Walking in the Shoes of a Child with Learning Disabilities”
In conjunction with the Trinity University School Psychology Program
Took place on Saturday, September 16, 2017


On Saturday, September 16, parents, teachers, university students, and others experienced the disorienting world of dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other learning differences. Using mirrors and other tools, graduate students from Trinity University guided participants as they try to read, do arithmetic, and other academic tasks. To most, this is a powerful experience that solicited compassion, respect, and tearful emotion for anyone who faces such challenges 24 hours a day.

Took place on Tuesday, October 17, 2017
