(Seguin) -- The Seguin ISD is doing more than just helping students with learning disabilities. They are also working to educate those around them. The district tonight will be hosting an unique Experience Dyslexia Training for the public.
Allison Higginbotham, Seguin ISD data and compliance coordinator, says the training event, open to adults free of charge, is designed to give attendees a true dyslexia experience.
District officials say through interactive stations, participants will feel and experience the challenges and frustrations that students with dyslexia encounter daily.
"Our goal is that this experience will provide insight for parents and teachers and anyone interested in learning more about dyslexia. Our hope is that this will allow them to work more effectively with children with dyslexia and lead to greater empathy and understanding," said Higginbotham.
Following the training, a question and answer session will be held. The session will be led by Seguin ISD dyslexia teachers. The free Experience Dyslexia training from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today in the Seguin ISD Administration Building located in Oak Park Mall.
