This site provides learning disability characteristics for reading, writing, math, and attention disorders. Each area has a “Basic,” Difficulties,” and “Responses” page that you should read. On the Basic page, there are several simulations. As you read through, a message is displayed that asks you “Try it yourself” to experience a specific simulation. You will need to try at least one simulation from each area (reading, math, writing, and attention) for a total of 4. After each simulation, briefly describe what you were to do in the simulation and summarize how you felt performing the simulation in 150-250 words each. Each simulation is worth 5 points for a total of 20 points. (Some students have experienced problems accessing the Attention simulation. If this is a problem for you, do two of one of the other (2 math, or 2 reading, or 2 writing to add up to the four simulations.) The assignment should be uploaded by Sunday, September 5th, at 11:59 pm.
