A message from our Patron â The Duchess of Rutland
I am delighted to be the Patron of Dayglo Books Ltd. As a person with dyslexia myself, I appreciate these books being available. The people at Dayglo Books have a real passion for making reading more accessible than ever before to dyslexic people. They have foresight and talent and truly believe in the joy of reading for pleasure.
What are Dayglo Books?..
Dayglo books are the first and only books designed to address the difficulties faced by people who have to deal with Visual Stress and Dyslexia on a daily basis in their lives. We offer understanding, respect and support to these readers and a practical approach to their problems.
A word of explanation - Visual Stress is not âeye strainâ. It is the term used to describe âover-excitabilityâ in the visual cortex of the brain when a reader looks at black print on a bright, white background.
Take a look at our selection!
Dayglo Books feature:
- Non-white paper
- A spacious page layout
- A clear type face
- Well defined paragraphs
- Ragged right-hand margins
- A maximum of 100 pages
In other words - they are unique
Dayglo Books provide people who live with Visual Stress and Dyslexia with a range of accessible reading material to suit all ages and tastes, with a catalogue of original, smartly produced, attractive looking books at an affordable price.
Dayglo Books is proud to present their newest author REBECCA CONSTABLE
Her evocative piece of creative writing based on her experience of being dyslexic was the winning entry in the 2016 âNottingham Young Creatives Awardsâ.
Rebeccaâs book breaks new ground. The same book can be had with the text on a choice of six different background colours. The books are not printed on coloured paper â each tint has been carefully selected and is printed on to the background at the same time as the text. Dyslexic readers can select the tint that works best for them. This has never been done before â a world first for Dayglo Books!
Holly Willoughby is a brave and a beautiful lady - and dyslexic.
Attitudes to dyslexia may have changed over the years but for some dyslexic people it is still something to keep quiet about. When celebrities speak out, it really helps.
The 2nd part of my 3-generational view of dyslexia examines first granddad's son, born in 1978 and finally his grandson born in 2008, looking at (1) the major changes in schools over those two 30-year periods (2) the big upheavals in society at large during that time (3) how these issues have impacted upon dyslexic people.
DYSLEXIA - ? A GENERATIONAL ISSUE [Part 1]
"When I was a lad we'd never heard of Dyslexia. Now you hear of nothing else."
This was said to me recently by a man of 70. I began to wonder whether there was any substance to his comment. I decided to look into it.
WHAT DID I FIND? I found a lot!
