Winston Learning Series


“Experience Dyslexia®”
A Learning Disabilities Simulation
In conjunction with the Trinity University School Psychology Program
Will take place virtually on Saturday, February 27, 2021

 

On Saturday, February 27, 2021, parents, teachers, university students, and others will experience 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, write, 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.

Experience Dyslexia & other learning disabilities first-hand in this free virtual simulation. 

This intense, interactive workshop will give attendees a first-hand understanding of the difficulties and frustrations students with reading and language disabilities encounter.
