By Haley Hall, B.A. LEAP Instructor & Learning Specialist
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience life through your child’s eyes? You’ve probably read countless articles and books about your child’s learning or attention difficulties. As their parent, you know a lot about how they learn best and what routines work well for them. However, you have probably not had a chance to actually experience the difficulties that your child faces on a daily basis. Follow the link below to check out a simulator that allows you to choose your child’s grade level and specific learning difficulties. You can do activities and watch videos that allow you to experience what different tasks would be like for your child.
I tried out the simulator for various different age ranges and skills and it helped improve my understanding of being in a student’s perspective. Trying to follow directions with distractions is frustrating and difficult. Reading and spelling are a struggle when the letters appear flipped around. If your child struggles with attention, academics, or language check out our website at www.enrichmenttherapies.com or give us a call to discuss how we can help your child meet their goals.
