This project is about making school learning easier for children with Dyslexia. Dyslexia is a Specific Learning Disability in which a person with average or above average IQ faces difficulty in reading and decoding words. There are approximately 5 to 15% (diagnosed) such students studying regular schools, struggling to stay par with the progress of the class and often being labeled ‘dumb’ or ‘stupid’, despite being gifted and intelligent individuals.
This projects takes a deeper look into the mind of a dyslexic person, analyzes different teaching methods that are employed to teach such children and experiments with designing a new teaching methodology that is considerate of the crux of Dyslexia and makes school less of a dread for a dyslexic person. A practical approach involving ground testing and consultations with special educators, was taken for this project. Building upon what all has already been done in this field, this project will be a visual animated dictionary that combines the spelling of the word in such a way with its meaning or visualization that it becomes easy to remember for a person with dyslexia.
