Breakout Stations: EXPERIENCE DYSLEXIA®
8-10am and 10am-12pm
“The simulation is a hands-on activity that lets participants experience some of the challenges and frustrations faced by people with this language-based learning disability. The updated simulation provides a lively, thought-provoking activity for teachers, parents, or anyone interested in better understanding the lives of individuals with dyslexia.” (NCBIDA)
Screening of: THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA
8-10am and 10am-12pm
“This movie provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.” (2014 The Big Picture Movie)
