Experience Dyslexia® Simulations


Experience Dyslexia®

A Learning Disabilities Simulation

Part of the IDA-RMB Professional Development Program


What is Experience Dyslexia®?


This simulation lets participants experience some of the challenges and frustrations faced by people with language-based learning differences. Participants are guided through six learning tasks commonly encountered in the classroom or workplace. These activities are followed by a group discussion focusing on experiences shared and lessons learned, as well as practical tips, accommodations and interventions for the classroom.

Want to bring Experience Dyslexia® to your group or school?

Simulation events in Colorado can be booked through the Rocky Mountain Branch of the IDA. Events include materials, a dyslexia presentation and a trained facilitator. We recommend a two-hour block of time but can adapt the training to meet your needs.
The cost for us to bring Experience Dyslexia® to your group is $250. There is an additional charge for mileage (standard rate) for locations more than 50 miles from Denver. Lodging for facilitators is also a potential additional cost if needed. Scholarships may be available.

If you are interested in learning more about holding a simulation, please email us at ida_rmb@yahoo.com with the following information:

  • Your Name, Email Address, and Phone Number
  • Organization Name
  • Location
  • Target Audience (teachers, community, students, etc.)
  • Estimated number of attendees
  • Requested Date(s)
  • Requested Start and Stop Times
    • Please note that most of our volunteers are educators, therefore staffing a simulation during the work day will be more difficult for us to accommodate. Thank you for understanding!

A member of our Professional Development Committee will contact you to answer questions and help coordinate your event.


We look forward to working with you!
