“Walking in the Shoes of a Child with Learning Disabilities”
In conjunction with the Trinity University School Psychology Program
Took place on Saturday, September 29, 2018

 

On Saturday, September 29, 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 will guide participants as they try to read, do arithmetic, and other academic tasks. To most, this was a powerful experience that solicits compassion, respect, and tearful emotion for anyone who faces such challenges 24 hours a day.
