For all educators and allies to exceptional learners: When you have time (ha!), please check out the above simulation, which is designed to create empathy and understanding of the struggles experienced daily for students with specific learning disabilities. These simulations are specific to difficulties in reading, attention, writing and math. Keep in mind that all people experience these struggles differently, and these gamelike simulations are meant to create awareness, not stereotypes. Thanks for taking a risk and doing something which may make you feel vulnerable- these simulations are indeed frustrating, and do a good job of making their point.
