I wonder what it’s like to be dyslexic by Sam Barclay

this guy is super genuine and I appreciate his efforts to help those of us who are not dyslexic understand what it’s like to struggle with reading. I can’t wait to order the book!

From the website:
People all over the world struggle with reading for a variety of reasons, including dyslexia, lack of education and an unfamiliar language to name a few. People with reading difficulty are often capable of thinking in ways that others aren’t and as a result are capable of true greatness, yet these people are often misunderstood and treated unfairly as a result.

Failing to encourage those with reading difficulties in a way that makes sense to them can limit (and in many cases damage) their ability to progress.

Great effort has been made to provide tools aimed at improving a persons reading but very little has been done to give those around them an understanding of what it really feels like to struggle in such a way.
