Have you ever wondered what it is like to have ADHD or a learning disorder like dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia?
The PBS Misunderstood Minds website offers a number of experiential activities along with a wealth of other useful information and resources. Try a few of the links below to walk in their shoes for a moment:
2. Auditory Activity: Listening to Directions "attempts to illustrate what it might be like for a first-grader with an
attention disorder to try to concentrate on a set of oral instructions
amidst a cacophony of classroom distractions"
8. Spatial Activity: Making 3-D Inferences simulates dyscalculia by impairing your ability to visualize "three-dimensional objects presented on the flat surface of a piece of paper or computer screen"
9. Sequence Activity: Multistep Problems "is designed to evoke in you the intimidation and frustration a young
student with a math disability might feel working out a problem that
requires the integration of mathematics skills"
