Naomi Orlovsky's insight:

This is an excellent virtual simulation that can be shared with parents, teachers, coworkers, etc to help others understand specific learning challenges that an individual (Pre-K - Adult) may be experiencing in reading, writing, math, attention, and organization.  I have been to conferences that have shared these simulations, but it was really nice to find a free tool that I can share with others to experience in a virtual format.
