AIM Academy, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (PBIDA), is offering a dyslexia simulation for parents. This lively and thought-provoking activity begins with a brief discussion of dyslexia, including the neurological basis, the demographics, the warning signs, and the interventions which have been shown, through solid research, to have positive impact.
Participants then take part in six simulated activities which mimic the experiences and processing of those with dyslexia.
Finally, participants are able to ask questions of an experienced panel.

"I have so much more respect for my child, knowing how hard it is for him at school every day."
