This story, believe it or not, is the very familiar fable of Little Red Riding Hood. This curious version was written in 1940 by a professor of French named H. L. Chace, who wanted to show his students that intonation - that is, the melody of a language - is an integral part of its meaning. The words here are all common English words, but not the ones you'd expect to tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

The point:
People with disabilities sometimes perceive things totally different than how we percieve things.  This is especially true with people who have a learning disability.  You may have become very frustrated while trying to read this story.  Imagine the frustration of students who have to read on a daily basis.  It isn't that they don't try hard enough or that they are just dumb... it's that their minds work differently.  We may see the word bat.  They may see the word pat.  When you were reading, you may have been able to pronounce the words... but did you understand the meaning?  People with learning disabilities often are able to read through an entire story but understand nothing.  Maybe now you can start to understand how they feel.
