This project by Sam Barclay is a graphic exploration which enables the reader to experience the struggle of reading with dyslexia. The document takes us on this journey with a series of typographic experiments, facts, and personal insights about dyslexia and what it means to be dyslexic. Sam is seeking funding via kick starter for this self published title. I am super excited about this project - and thrilled it has been fully funded but want to encourage you all to continue to back and support this excellent initiative as Sam is also generously raising money for the British Dyslexia Association.
"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 in life.
Whether you have a child, student, colleague or peer that struggles with reading or you yourself experience that difficulty, this book is designed for you."
