How Difficult Can This Be? The F.A.T. City Workshop
This program, originally shown on PBS, does a wonderful job in showing what it FEELS like to be a child with a learning disability in a typical classroom.
For kids with learning disabilities, the classroom can be an intimidating place. In this workshop, Richard D. Lavoie shows why. He leads a group of parents, educators, psychologists, and children through a series of exercises that cause frustration, anxiety, and tension…feelings all too familiar to children with learning disabilities. By dramatizing the classroom experience so vividly, Lavoie lets us see the world throught the eyes of a child. At the end of the workshop, participants discuss strategies for working more effectively with learning disabled children.
