Sim-dis. Simulations of disabilities website

05/10/2010 

This site contains a collection of computer based artifacts that simulate aspects of disability. It is intended that the simulations will be used for training and awareness raising activities with staff and for teaching students in areas where an understanding of disability is required.

No simulation can give the true feelings of what it is like to have a disability. It is hoped the simulations will provide 'food' for thought and promote enlightened discussion, which will lead to a better understanding.

They have been designed from anecdotal comments made by people with a disability and staff involved in teaching and supporting students with disabilities.

Covers Autism, Dyslexia, Hearing Impairments and Visual Impairments
