Do you have students who are dyslexic or displaying the signs of dyslexia? If you do then you need to know about the Dyslexie Font!
Dyslexia is a language-based processing learning disability. It affects adults and children and presents as problems with accuracy & fluency in literacy, particularly difficulties in word recognition, decoding and spelling regardless of effective classroom instruction. These problems can also lead to secondary problems in reading comprehension which can also limit vocabulary growth.
The Dyslexia SPELD Foundation in Western Australia has some fabulous support for children, older children & Adults including books, tutoring & FREE advice on how to structure classroom instruction:
- Teaching Spelling – Focussing on Phonics Knowledge, Phonological Awareness, Spelling Conventions & Patterns, Metacognitive & Memory Skills, Morphology & Syntax (Grammar), Semantic Knowledge & Etymology
- Teaching Reading – Focussing on Developing Phonics Knowledge & Reading Accuracy, Decoding Skills & Fluency
- Teaching Writing – Focussing on Talking & Reading for Writing, Sentence Level Teaching: Grammar, Building Sentences, Building Longer Sentences, Paragraph Level Teaching: Drafting, Revising & Editing
Having Dyslexia is a learning disability which makes it difficult for sufferers to see the differences between certain letters, making reading & writing impossible!
But what if there was another way to help your students decipher written text?
Well now there is… Introducing The Dyslexie Font created by Dutch graphic designer Christian Boer, who is also dyslexic! He created the Dyslexie Font whilst studying at the Utrecht Art Academy in the Netherlands to make reading easier for people, like himself, who have dyslexia.
The font makes reading easier for people with dyslexia by varying the letter shapes more, making it harder to confuse similarly shaped letters like “b” and “d”.
