Dyslexia Stories 8

Telling your dyslexia story using art and e-books In the previous 2 blog posts we looked at telling your dyslexia story in person and through video and audio. This blog post looks at 2 more ways in which you can tell your dyslexia story: A. Telling your dyslexia story through art You can use any media and technology you like to produce your own art.  Here are some examples of art forms you can use to tell your dyslexia story: 1. Animation / Illustration 2. Creating your own comic strip B. Telling your dyslexia story in an e-book You can use the following iPad Apps to create electronic books.  The aspect of doing so that is perhaps most appealing for dyslexics is that you can make your story multisensory, by using audio, video, images and words.  Adding text is also optional.  In other words, you can tell your story without written text, through audio, video and images e.g. photos. 1.
