    Swedish web developer, Victor Widell, created this dyslexia simulator after a discussion with a dyslexia friend. Try reading the passage. For some it will be difficult, but even if you find it moderately easy you will most certainly agree that it requires more time and concentration than if you were to read a 'normally written' passage. It isn't really a resource to use in the classroom, but it will be sure to give you a new perspective on the struggles a dyslexic student faces on a daily basis.
