Dyslexia and Disorientation

Sometimes non-dyslexic individuals find it hard to put themselves into the shoes of a dyslexic reader. This website shows an exaggerated version, but probably quite accurate for some of our more severe dyslexic people.

For us, disorientation is one of the key components when correcting dyslexia. Disorientation, being a state of mental perception that is not congruent with the true facts and conditions in the environment. Disorientation – for dyslexics – is often a response to confusion around words and symbols. When disoriented, perceptions are altered.

That is more or less the state that this website is able to put everyone in. I hope you won’t get a headache, but if you do, you may find empathy for these young learners that have to deal with it all the time. No wonder they get frustrated and/or angry.
