At the Highground Diversity Days CILWW has an interactive educational exhibit. Using differently taped gloves, modified sunglasses, and noise reduction headphones to simulate disabilities. Allowing the children try out a disability while pointing out the challenge some people with disabilities face daily.
With the taped glove, limited sensation and dexterity is simulated. The children are asked to try to open a container with candy in it or try writing. The sunglasses are modified to simulate vision loss such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy or cataracts. They are asked to try to read their name they wrote or the disability etiquette information like meeting someone who is blind. The noise reduction headphones help the children understand what hearing loss is like, which creates a barrier to good communication.
