DESIGNING FOR

DYSLEXIA

 

CREATING COURSE MATERIAL FOR THE DYSLEXIC STUDENT

Dyslexia is a learning disability that causes difficulty in reading and in the decoding of words and sentences. It is difficult for those who do not have dyslexia to understand what it is like to struggle with reading and processing information. In order to create a positive reading experience for those students who are dyslexic, a style guide is created for educators at a higher education learning institution. This style guide is to help instructors create course material that will aid in better reading fluency and comprehension for those students with dyslexia, while also creating a universally enhanced reading experience.

"Portraits" are series of short bios focused on telling the stories of individuals. The first in the series, Rebecca Cash, a college student at Jacksonville State University, shares her inspiring story about living with dyslexia.
