Designer Shows the World Through a Dyslexic’s Eyes

What’s it like to be dyslexic? To struggle with reading because letters and words seem to have no order? UK-based designer Sam Barclay decided to show people what he’s challenged with on a daily basis with a powerful new book. His Kickstarter project, “I Wonder What It’s Like to be Dyslexic,” aims to educate people like teachers and parents on what it feels like to be face to face with pages of text from a dyslexic person’s perspective.

As Barclay states, “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.”

With 484 backers, the Kickstarter has already reached its goal but it still has 20 days left to go before it’s done. Make sure to back this important and eye-opening project.
