3D Printing Tools for Treating Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Dyslexia is not an uncommon disorder, and it affects only writing, not speech or any other aspect of life. It is frequently diagnosed in early childhood, and specialized teaching devices are used to treat it. In a paper entitled “Design and production of plastic parts for read-write didactic equipment using 3D printer,” a group of researchers discusses using 3D printing to design and produce parts of this teaching equipment.

Helping students with dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Researchers estimate that dyslexia affects between 5 and 12 percent of the U.S. population — and as many as 80 percent of students who struggle with reading.

If you find that statistic startling, you’re not alone: It wasn’t until 2017 that New York State clarified that a diagnosis of dyslexia could be used in classifying students with a learning disability in order to determine eligibility for special education services and Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

Dyslexia font does not help at all

Dyslexia: News from the web:

The Dyslexie font, designed in 2009 by graphic designer Christian Boer, claims to have positive effects on reading for those with dyslexia. This development comes from the argument that children with dyslexia require a larger font size and greater spacing between letters to enhance reading abilities. However, dyslexia has historically been known as a phonological deficit, rather than a visual one, calling to question this claim. This research looks into the effects on reading of using Dyslexie font compared to mainstream fonts, and uncovers the reality of specialized fonts such as Dyslexie.

End of Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Well not really but read the great story by Lisa Wood Shapiro, who was and is dyslectic but has found remarkable ways to get around most issues and works as a writer. She says:

But I’ve never thought of myself as having a disability. Instead, I see it as a glitch, and one I’ve gotten good at masking. I’ve been able to hide my dyslexia for decades simply because I live in an age of technological wonders. Microsoft Word spell-checks most every syllable I write. When my dyslexic mind mangles a word so much that it’s rendered un-spell-checkable, I’ll deploy an arsenal of workarounds. I might reverse-engineer a word by typing an easy synonym into the thesaurus, or I might paste my best attempt into my browser bar and let the search engine offer the correct spelling as a suggested query.

Intense specialized training improves and impacts the brain

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Using MRI measurements of the brain’s neural connections, or “white matter,” UW researchers have shown that, in struggling readers, the neural circuitry strengthened—and their reading performance improved—after just eight weeks of a specialized tutoring program. The study, published June 8 in Nature Communications, is the first to measure white matter during an intensive educational intervention and link children’s learning with their brains’ flexibility.
