What attendees are saying about our “Simulation” workshop:
- …(learned) how frustrated students can get and how at times we do them a real disservice because we don’t stop to think about this. …learned how it felt to be a student with dyslexia – it brought tears to my eyes!
- …(understand) why my strugglers are so exhausted by the end of the day…how distracting background noise is to some kids.
- …experiencing some of the struggles and emotions of dyslexic student/person! Eye opening!
- I saw what it was like to walk in a child’s shoes with dyslexia- it was hard and frustrating. Very informative – great class.
- Very well done – hands on activities. I’ll remember how difficult dyslexia can be for a student.
- I need to slow down and encourage more.
- Wow – loved all the hands-on stuff! How very frustrating! Suddenly I couldn’t read or write.
- …identifying the emotions that come with not being able to read well. – Identifying how impatient I have been as a teacher.
- Since I felt it physically and emotionally, it really hit me and I will make a big conscious effort to watch what I say and do to or for students!
