Interested in understanding Dyslexia?

Submitted By Beth Mattsson-Boze

This popular learning disabilities simulation is a hands-on learning activity that lets you experience some of the challenges and frustrations faced by people with dyslexia, a language-based learning disability. The program, "Experiencing Dyslexia," to be held on Saturday, February 9, from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m., is a lively and thought-provoking activity for teachers, parents, or anyone interested in better understanding the lives of individuals with dyslexia.

Facilitated by Nancy Redding, past president of the Northern California Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (NCBIDA) and guided by station leaders, all participants will rotate among six learning stations that simulate language-related tasks that may be encountered in the classroom and workplace.

The cost for the program is $10/person by February 8 or $15 at the door. (Limited to 60 participants). To register, call the Stellar Academy for Dyslexics office at (510) 797-2227.
