Dyslexics increase reading speed by an average 20%

1 Jul
I recently stumbled across this artice which describes the results of a study that showed that increasing the spacing between letters and words in text resulted in an average 20% improvement in reading speed for dyslexic children, and also increased accuracy!

It sometimes amazes me that something so simple can make such a profound difference!

It appears that there is an app available which will aid in their research, and at the same time allow you to determine your optimal letter spacing.

Hopefully this will help someone out there, but even if it doesn’t help you or your little one, please consider helping others by downloading the app and participating in the research!
