Dyslexia by Anne Ligtenberg

Much has been written about dyslexia. In words − the very form that dyslexics find most difficult. As a dyslexic herself, Anne Ligtenberg knows like no other the problems that words present. She wanted to find a new way to reflect the effects of the disorder, without only relying on language. Instead of just ‘telling the story’, in her book, the structure itself symbolises the two hemispheres of the brain: one side of the book is more language-based and the other is more visual. To understand the whole picture, you have to make connections between both parts of the book.
