There are things we can do to make life easier for people around us who have dyslexia. After reading this article, you'll learn what to do. Things you can do:
  • Use dyslexia-friendly font. Fonts like Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, Geneva, and Verdana are easier for the dyslexic to read. Most of them prefer 12-14 point font.
  • Protect their privacy. Don't tell other people that your student or employee has dyslexia. Otherwise, you'll hurt the person as dyslexia is still associated with something bad.
  • Write clearly. Use short sentences. Add pictures and charts if possible.
  • Use paper that is optimal for reading. The paper needs to be thick enough that you can't see what's written on the other side. Avoid using paper that reflects light.
