Disability Simulation Workshop

Disability Simulation Workshop (2 hours)

Presenters: Katie Grubert and Rory Christensen MA CCC-SLP (AAC Specialist)

This is a hands-on workshop to put ourselves in the shoes of our students with disabilities.  During this task, professionals will be asked to participate in activities to learn what it is like from a different perspective.  Activities will include simulations for sensory overload and disabilities in the following areas: vision, hearing, communication, reading, writing, gross motor, math, and memory.  After professionals have completed these simulations, assistive technology tools will be provided to help them understand how to support our students.

NOTE: This workshop can be adjusted to help professionals understand the specific needs of students they are currently working with
