Students at Coventry University created this animation as part of a project to highlight some of the issues that people with visual dyslexia suffer from. They’ve obviously read The Gift of Dyslexia by Ron Davis because of the reference to words simply crawling off the page and under the carpet. I’ve been wanting to try and illustrate this in my journal since I read about it but couldn’t come up with an illustration that could represent it that I could actually draw.
The students at Coventry however have created a DVD, cleverly titled ‘Demystifying Visual Dyslexia’, which is aimed at parents to all them to encounter the difficulties in visual perception that their child may be suffering from.

For educational ergonomists it is important to understand the learning requirements of all children, and to design interventions and environments that can enable them to fulfil their potential.”
