Helping those that struggle with reading.

People all over the world struggle with reading for a variety of reasons, including dyslexia, lack of education and an unfamiliar language to name a few. People with reading difficulty are often capable of thinking in ways that others aren't and as a result are capable of true greatness, yet these people are often misunderstood and treated unfairly as a result.

"Beautifully designed and fit for both coffee tables and classrooms, the book helps those who aren't dyslexic understand what it's like to struggle with reading on a daily basis."

The Huffington Post

"In Barclay's visionary creation, somewhere between a coffee table book and a textbook, letters morph into shapes which meander, swap places and play tricks on the eye. Frustrating yet fascinating, the book reveals a space between words and meaning where new interpretations of language are possible."


Who the book is for

For your business 
As stated in the Equality Act 2010, disability discrimination legislation prohibits discrimination against disabled people in employment and in the provision of goods and services. This includes those with dyslexia. 

With or without legislation, many businesses require staff and customers to read a great deal - whether it be T&C's, returns policies, reports, daily emails... the list goes on. 

Helping staff to truly understand what it might feel like for a colleague or customer to struggle with reading will greatly improve your business. 

For your school/college/university 
The impact of dyslexia is rarely seen in greater force than in education. Students that cannot learn to read have enormous difficulty reading to learn. If those around them - be it their teachers, parents or fellow students - can begin to understand what it feels like for them to be face to face with a page of text, the positive impact on their self esteem will be felt for the rest of their lives.
