For years, educators have struggled with how to help students with dyslexia learn to read at the same pace as their classmates. Dyslexia is a type of learning disability that affects the way letters are visually perceived. Letters such as “m” and “n” are easily confused, while other letters are flipped horizontally or vertically by the brain.
As a result, individuals with dyslexia struggle to distinguish letters and words as quickly as individuals without the learning disability. Dyslexia affects as much as 5-10% of the world population, and educators have learned to modify their teaching style to help their students.
However, Christian Boer may have revolutionized the world for people struggling with dyslexia. He has created a new font that makes small adjustments to each letter that helps illuminate the differences between similar letters.
