PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity simulates what it's like to have a reading disability that causes you to make letter reversals. The paragraph is written at 3rd grade level. I made this activity up after my daughter Isobelle came home crying. Another child had done a book report about a girl with a mentally disabled brother. When the class heard that the brother was mentally disabled, they laughed. Isobelle has two siblings that are mentally disabled and have multiple disabilities, including reading disabilities. I emailed this activity to the teacher and asked her if she'd be willing to let her class try it. It occurred to me that compassion for others is a lesson a lot of kids should learn.
