The activities were a very nice way to show how certain disabled persons experience the world and learning. Each of the different sections had activities I enjoyed and some I did not totally understand the logic. The Activity I enjoyed the most was in the Attention Section #2.
The goal was to place shapes with colors over other shapes and colors. The activity started out easy, but then became very difficult as the teacher quickened her responces. The next distraction when other children started talking and the teachers voice almost disappeared was very difficult. I tried to close my eyes and focus on her voice but it easily got lost. I placed 6 out of 9 shapes correctly. This activity was a nice example of how some children can do well when the instructions are clear and at a good pace, but when the pace is increased and distractions start, it is easy to see how difficult it would be to stay on track.
The activities really displayed atributes of these diabilities well. I thought the writing portions and reading activities were difficult when you see some of the disabled modifications showed how hard it is for people with disabilities to understand even letter recognition and word structure.
It was a good exercise and makes you appreciate that all of us who are able to function at a high level really are blessed when you see how difficult it could be.
