Project description

Dyslexia and the creative mindset is the brainchild of film maker Mark Ashmore. Its aim is to create a series of short animation films and a visual story book to tell 100 stories of finding out about dyslexia and the journey of learning differently.

The book will consist of crowdsourced stories, created by people with dyslexia for people with dyslexia, and will be available as a limited edition hard copy and a free to download accessible PDF. The films will use visual story-telling. The book will use both dyslexia-friendly text and layouts, alongside a visual, illustrated telling of each story.

Both creations will be made available free of charge and will inspire, educate and inform children aged 7 to 14 who have dyslexia, as well as their parents and teachers.
