Dyslexia and Technology

Dyslexia is a condition that affects the learning processes involved with reading, spelling and/or writing. It is estimated that dyslexia affects approximately 1 in 10 people with 1 in 25 being classed as severely dyslexic. It is what we now recognise as a neurodiverse condition. Neurodiversity recognises that humans are not all the same and a neurological difference such as dyslexia is a normal variation of the human experience with a number of positive and desirable character traits and a fundamental part of a person's identity. This factsheet gives an overview of some of the ways that technology can be used to assist people with dyslexia. Much of this help is built into devices or available for free.
