Dyslexia: News from the web:
A group of Plano middle schoolers wants to help those with the reading disability by developing a mobile app that will allow users to customize text to their specific needs.
“Dyslexia is a really big problem in the world,” said David Yue, 13. “It doesn’t mean that someone is not smart. They just have a disability or a neurological misfiring that doesn’t allow them to read as well as other people. We wanted to give every dyslexic a chance to be able to excel in school and all the activities they do.”
Yue and fellow eighth-graders from Rice Middle School developed the concept for an app called Mind Glass as part of a Verizon Innovative App Challenge. The team was one of eight national winners, earning $20,000 for the school and the opportunity to work one-on-one with professionals from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to build the app.
