A Learning Disabilities
Experience Dyslexia®, developed by the Northern California Branch of IDA, is a hands-on workshop that lets participants experience some of the challenges and frustrations that people with Dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities face each day. The simulation provides a lively, thought-provoking experience for teachers, parents, and anyone interested in better understanding the lives of individuals with dyslexia.

"I found it extremely eye-opening to put myself in the shoes of a dyslexic learner. I thought I had an idea what students with dyslexia felt, but I really didn’t. I was frustrated when doing the tasks and can only imagine what a student with dyslexia must feel every day.” – a simulation participant
