Mobil technology - a help for those with dyslexia
Check out this article on a study being done at Landmark school (a private school in Massachusetts for students with language-based learning disabilities). The study is being conducted by a researcher (Dr. Matthew Schneps, a Harvard astrophysicist at the Laboratory for Visual Learning at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) who has dyslexia found that his ability to read improved with features that both restricted the amount of text he could see at one time and allowed him to scroll up manually ---- makes sense ---- made me think ---- wow! Here is a link to the article and I hope you get a wow too! http://www.fastcoexist.com/1679833/using-mobile-screens-to-make-reading-easier-for-dyslexics
