(Friend, April 1982, suggestion # 4)
Plan an experience to help teach empathy. Emphasize to children that each action that they do represents only one of the problems that people with these handicaps have.
Learn to sign a song or phrase.
or Blindfold some children and have others act as their guides. You can obtain braille book and have children write alphabet, their initials, or names in braille.
or Put socks over several children’s hands and have them try to button their shirts or tie their shoes.
or Simulate dyslexia by trying to write word while looking at reflection of pencil in mirror.
