My hubby is a really interesting guy with a knack for discovering things. He dropped this little goodie in my mailbox this morning...
Dyslexie... a font specifically for people struggling with dyslexia.
Working with early readers who struggle with reversals in both reading and writing, I am always looking for new ways to assist them in conquering the hurdle of consistently and accurately identifying (and using) similar symbols in the written word. The University of Twente, located in the Netherlands, conducted research on the dyslexics interaction with the font. The initial findings indicated that people suffering from dyslexia made fewer errors than normal readers when reading materials which used the Dyslexie font. The conclusion drawn from these findings... "... reading with the font "Dyslexie" decreases the amount of reading errors." (Note: Although the video is presented in English, you can definitely tell that native speakers didn't write it.) Needless to say, the concept is an interesting one. Take a look!
I wonder if it will take off? Would love to hear your thoughts! For more information check out this website www.studiostudio.nl
