Personal Stories

  • your own experience of why reading is difficult for you, and what you would like designers to do for you
  • work that you have done and why you did it
  • why you are interested in designing for people who do not read easily.

Please add your own page and then add a link to it here. Or create a page to link to any interesting story.
