The wiki for the dyslexia community[]

The word "dyslexia" comes from the Greek, "dys" meaning "difficulty" and "lexis" meaning "language and letters." It affects between 5 - 15% of the population.

The Dyslexia Wiki will include information for dyslexics, and about dyslexia.

Primarily, it will be a community forum for discussions and for collaborative projects centered on dyslexia and dyslexics.

Dyslexia at Wikipedia[]

The Dyslexia article at Wikipedia is a major collaborative project, at which knowledgeable people are encouraged to add to the definition of dyslexia, and to the lists of existing resources.

There are many, many resources available on the internet for information about and support for those with dyslexia. Start at Wikipedia:Dyslexia for more information and many links to other resources.

Dyslexia Handheld Computer project[]

Another is a collaborative design project aimed at the creation of a handheld computer specifically for dyslexic learners. Wikis were initially invented by programmers to collaboratively design software. Join other interested community members design a Dyslexia Handheld Computer.

Improving representation of the dyslexia community[]

One project at this wiki is a discussion of the role that those with dyslexia play in society. See Dyslexic Representation.

If you are involved in another collaborative project centered on dyslexia, that you believe would benefit from being in this forum, please add it to this wiki.
