ROCHESTER, Minn. - 

At the Rochester Area Foundation - the Reading Center hosted a simulation in which people got to experience dyslexia.

"It makes it real, it makes it feel real, dyslexia is a disability you can't see, it's something that's very, very difficult to understand," Jan Hagedorn, the Director of Reading Readiness said. 

The Reading Center will open a new building in December.
