Who is "The Eye-Opening Dyslexia Experience" for?
The parent of a child that has been diagnosed with dyslexia and you want to learn what it might be like for them.
You think your child may have dyslexia and you want to learn what it is like.
Anyone interested in learning more about dyslexia and what those with dyslexia often experience.
I am offering this immersive interactive simulation so you can develop understanding and empathy for people who live with this every day.
“I think this experience has given me a whole new level of understanding of what my son experiences every day. And, I definitely think I will be much more patient with him and just realizing how hard he is working. (These simulations) really brought that home for me"
— Kathleen, parent
"After five simulations ... I am feeling very frustrated, angry, unintelligent, upset with myself and my abilities, and just a lack of motivation now, kind of giving up ... I am a Special Education teacher. I work closely with students that have dyslexia. Every simulation we did .. is completely right on. I've seen firsthand a person who struggles, all the avoidance and exhaustion. One thing they need to know is they are very intelligent human beings and to be congratulated for really trying hard and moving forward."
-Jacqueline, Special Education Teacher
During "The Dyslexia Eye-Opening Experience" you will:
Be put through 5 different immersive interactive simulations to gain first hand experience what it is like to be dyslexic
In this simulation, you will experience how struggling to read words you don't know affects understanding of what you read. When a person with dyslexia is not able to read fluently, they are not able to remember what they read.
In this simulation you will feel how dyslexia can affect writing. You will see how when you are not given time to process or think about what you are writing will affect your ability to create sentences that are neat and written so you can read it.
Experience what it is like for a person that has dyslexia and how they process new information when it is given quickly. It is not that they are not able to understand, but it takes them more time and in smaller chunks.
+ these bonuses!
Common Signs of Dyslexia by Age Checklist
A checklist of the warning signs of dyslexia that people might display.
Together we will create
"Our Groups Top Accommodations for Dyslexia Workbook"
After each simulation, we will talk about what a teacher could have done to make the assignment meaningful.
These are the accommodations that your child would benefit from having in class.
At the end of the course, I will compile all of our accommodations that you have experienced yourself and feel will be the most helpful for a child with dyslexia in an workbook for you.
Here's what you get when you sign up!
"I am excited that I now understand it. But, also so much empathy for him .... This experience will change my patience level ... more understanding of the amount of time, brainpower & energy that it takes him to do what is asked of him in school."
"After experiencing the simulations.. my brain kind of hurt at the end and I felt kind of tired. I had to work extra hard... But, also the uplifting part is that I do feel good that I can kind of understand from someone who has dyslexia, their perspective... I feel like all teachers should experience something like this because it really does put you in the spot of someone who has dyslexia. It really can be an eye-opener."
- Brittany, Elementary Teacher

Is this course right for me?
✅ This course is a fantastic fit for you if:
You want to learn what it is like to live with dyslexia.
If you desire to understand and learn what a person with dyslexia goes through every day.
If you want to understand why your child is so tired when they come home from school.

You're not willing to be open to the experience
You are content with your understanding of what your child is going through.
You're resistant to understanding what it is like to live with dyslexia.
Email me at Kathy@MyHappyTeacher.com and
I'll help you decide if it's right for you!
You have two choices here...

Take some time to think about this
All I can say is, "You know how I feel."
- Adult with Dyslexia
1. You will receive an exciting email from me welcoming you to the course and any other important information that you need for the first simulation.
2. Also, in that email you will get a link to join the exclusive closed Facebook group. Make sure you sign up right away!!
3. Make sure that you include your "Facebook name" so we make sure to let you into the group 😉.
YES! But keep in mind that the course is designed for parents or guardians of a child who has dyslexia. I need to make sure that the environment is ideal for the simulations to be effective.
The course will start the week of September 12th and run for 5 weeks.
We will take a poll within our Facebook community to find the best time for most of the participants. If you are unable to attend the live class, NO WORRIES! You will automatically be emailed the recording to watch it whenever is convenient for you. I highly recommend you attend as many of the simulations as possible as it is more effective when you experience it live.
The interactive course is made up of Zoom calls that are recorded and emailed to you. All other course materials will be within the group files of our private Facebook community that you have LIFETIME access to.
You will be able to experience each of the simulations as many times as you want because you will have each of the simulations emailed to you. (Just make sure you download each one.) However, I do feel that the live first time experience of the simulations makes the biggest impact. You will have LIFETIME access to the supportive Facebook community where the rest of the content for the course will be stored.
I believe whole-heartedly in the The Eye-Opening Dyslexia Experience!
If you don't feel that this is a right fit for you, after 2 full sessions, I will refund you your money.
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have so you can determine if this course is right for you! Email me at Kathy@MyHappyTeacher.com and I'll get back to you asap.
Kathy Cousineau M.ed
Hey there!! My name is Kathy Cousineau and I will be taking you through "The Eye-Opening Dyslexia Experience".
My "why" for putting this all together is that in the 25+ years of teaching students with severe learning disabilities I have seen students with dyslexia misunderstood and treated like there is something wrong with them.
They were told that they were playing games and just not trying.
Because of dyslexia being a "hidden" disability to the eye, people do not realize how severe of a disability these children are dealing with.
Dyslexia impacts all areas of their lives, not just reading!
I have seen the effect of the child thinking something was wrong with them and how that devastates their self esteem & confidence.
It breaks my heart!!
I have fought so many battles to try to get these children what they need to be successful and to just level the playing field in the "typical" classroom.
I have made it a passion of mine to help people actually experience and walk in the shoes of someone that is dyslexic so they can gain more patience, understanding and develop empathy for what they are going through.
This is why I have developed this online interactive class. So that you can walk in the shoes of what it may be like to be dyslexic and truly embrace and understand the "hidden disability".
